Abstract
Hazards associated with the men's apparel industry were surveyed on February 7, 1974, at Beau Brummel Ties (SIC-2323) in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company employed 16 supervisors, 6 material handlers, 3 maintenance workers, 32 office workers, 17 shippers, 21 cutters, 108 sewers, and 21 pressers. A consulting physician was maintained, a first aid room was available, and one employee was trained in first aid. Cutting of the tie linings, made of wool, polyester and cotton, produced significant amounts of lint and dust, however, no dust measurements were taken. The author concludes that fabric dust may pose a health problem. Air sampling and dust characterization are recommended.
