Abstract
Worker exposures to toluene (108883) were determined at the Johnston and Murphy Shoe Company (SIC-3143) in Nashville, Tennessee, on January 18, 1979. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of the health effect of occupational toluene exposure. Approximately 460 of the employees were assigned to the production areas surveyed. The company had no formal industrial hygiene or medical program. Medical services were furnished by a local clinic. The company did maintain a formal safety program. Personnel records were available for active and inactive employees dating from 1962, with additional records available back to 1932. Toluene concentrations ranged from 38 to 580 parts per million (ppm). Total hydrocarbon concentrations ranged from 38 to 580ppm. No air samples exceeded the threshold limit values for toluene or total hydrocarbons. The author concludes that a determination regarding this facility's suitability for inclusion in the epidemiological study will be made at a later date.
