Abstract
Worker exposures to epichlorohydrin (106898) were investigated at the Celanese Coatings Company (SIC-2821) in Louisville, Kentucky, on February 24 and 25, 1976. Epichlorohydrin was used in the production of epoxy resins. The facility employed 30 to 40 persons directly involved in epoxy production. Medical services were provided by a part time physician and a nurse. Environmental monitoring was conducted periodically. Epichlorohydrin concentrations ranged from undetectable to 1.5 parts per million (ppm). No health hazard existed as the permissible concentration is 5.0ppm. The author recommends that the company maintain the current control procedures such as housekeeping, ventilation and process enclosure.
