Abstract
Worker exposures to industrial solvents were determined at the Ideal Decorating Corporation (SIC-2751) in Brooklyn, New York, on January 18, 20, and 22, 1979. About 18 of the employees were assigned to the production area. Air samples were analyzed for toluene (108883), xylene (1330207), methyl-isobutyl-ketone (108101), methyl- ethyl-ketone (78933), ethyl-acetate (141786), butyl-acetate (123864), cyclohexanone (108941), 1,2,3-trimethyl-benzene (526738), and 1,2,4-trimethyl-benzene (95636). All solvent concentration were well below the respective OSHA standards of 100, 100, 100, 200, 400, 150, 50, 25 and 25 parts per million. The author recommends use of solvent resistant gloves, proper storage of inks and solvents, hygienic housekeeping practices, judicial use of solvents, proper use and maintenance of respirators, prohibition of eating or smoking in or near working areas, and work education in the hazards and safe use of solvents.
