Abstract
Worker exposures to industrial solvents were determined at the Garrett Studio (SIC-2751) in New York City, New York, on January 14, 16, and 17, 1978. From three to seven workers were employed in the production areas surveyed. 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), 1,3,5-trimethyl-benzene (108678), 1,2,3-trimethyl-benzene (526738), and 1,2,4-trimethyl-benzene (95636). All solvent concentrations were within the respective OSHA standards of 100, 100, 100, 200, 400, 150, 50, 25, 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 worker education in the hazards and safe use of solvents.
