Abstract
Equipment, raw materials, manufacturing methods and work practices were investigated to identify possible health hazards at the Maxwell and Rothschild Company (SIC-2311) in Cincinnati, Ohio, on February 12, 1974. The company was included in the initial phase of a NIOSH survey of the men's apparel industry. Ten people were employed in the cloth sponging area. No formal medical, industrial hygiene or safety program was available. A nurse was employed to administer first aid to the employees. The cloth sponging procedure included inspecting, shrinking and decanting the fabric. The facility was poorly illuminated. The author notes that further surveys may include characterization of dust and lint produced from handling fabrics.
