Abstract
Worker exposures to toluene (108883) were determined at the Fasson Division of the Materials Group of Avery International (SIC-2641) in Painesville, Ohio, on May 3, 1979. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational toluene exposure. Approximately 231 of the employees are assigned to the production areas surveyed. The company had no formal safety or industrial hygiene program. Medical services were furnished by a local clinic and first aid trained employees. Personnel records were available for active and inactive employees dating from 1974. Air sample concentrations for toluene and total hydrocarbons were well below the existing OSHA permissible exposure limit of 200 parts per million for all areas tested. The authors conclude that the adequacy of this facility for a detailed industrial hygiene survey will be evaluated in light of its suitability for an epidemiologic study.
