Abstract
Worker exposures to painting materials were studied at International Harvester, Fort Wayne (SIC-3523) in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on December 6, 1978. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of health hazards in the painting industry. Approximately 118 of the employees of the facility were assigned to the painting operations surveyed. The company had a safety and industrial hygiene program. Medical services were furnished by 4 in- house dispensaries with 4 part time physicians, 10 fulltime nurses and 2 fulltime X-ray technicians. Personnel records provided demographic information and absence reports. The major types of paints utilized at this facility included flow coat and electroclip primers, and thermosetting acrylic enamels or two component polyurethane finish paints. The authors conclude that this facility would be suitable for an in-depth industrial hygiene survey, as well as for an epidemiological study.
