Abstract
Hazards associated with the men's apparel industry were surveyed on April 2, 1974, at Fechheimer Brothers, Company (SIC-2311) in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company employed 200 workers. Medical services were provided by one woman trained in first aid. Material used were wool and wool blends. Ventilation was provided by an air conditioning system. Sewing machines were equipped with needle guards. A hot wire process was used to seal the plastic film employed for wrapping pants. The general noise level was 68 to 70 decibels, and general area lighting levels were 125 foot candles. No dust measurements were taken, however, the work areas appeared clean and relatively dust free. The author recommends characterization of thermal decomposition products generated during the hot wire sealing process.
