Abstract
Worker exposures to lead (7439921) and cadmium (7440439) were surveyed of the lead department at the Federated Metals Corporation, in Whiting, Indiana, on June 24 and 25, 1971. Lead and cadmium concentrations were determined in blood and environmental air samples. Workers wore dust and mist filter respirators. No hazards from airborne cadmium were detected. Four air samples exceed the standard for lead (unspecified). Blood cadmium concentrations ranged from 0.1 to 0.4 micrograms per 100 grams, and lead concentrations ranged from 20 to 61 micrograms per 100 grams. The ventilation system was adequate only when the mixer unit was in place.
