Abstract
Worker exposures to vinyl-bromide (593602) and ethylene-dibromide (106934) was surveyed at the Ethyl Corporation vinyl-bromide manufacturing facility (SIC-2821) in Magnolia, Arkansas, on March 23 and 24, 1977. The facility employed 140 workers. Medical and industrial hygiene services were provided. Personal air samples contained 0.1 to 6.3 parts per million (ppm) vinyl-bromide and 0.05 to 0.57ppm ethylene-dibromide. The threshold limit values (TLV) for vinyl-bromide and ethylene-dibromide are 250 and 20ppm, respectively. The author recommends the use of respirators by tank car loaders.
