Abstract
Worker exposure to styrene (100425) and butadiene (106990) was determined at the American Synthetic Rubber Corporation (SIC-2822) in Louisville, Kentucky from May 11 to 12, 1976. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH environmental and epidemiological study of workers exposed to styrene-butadiene rubber. A company doctor was employed, and workers received medical examinations prior to employment. Personnel records included demographic information and job classifications. Styrene and butadiene were below federal standards for the seven workers who were monitored. The charcoal (16291966) tube sampling method with one tube set at a flow rate of 55 cubic centimeters per minute was adequate. The authors conclude that a suitable population exists for a retrospective cohort mortality study. They recommend improvements be made in housekeeping, maintenance, and sanitation throughout the factory.
