Abstract
Worker exposures to wood preservative agents were studied at the McArthur Lumber and Post Company (SIC-2491) in McArthur, Ohio, on July 10, 1979. The survey as undertaken to determine the need for comprehensive field investigations to evaluate long term health effects associated with chromated copper-arsenate (10103614) (CCA) or creosote (8021394). The company did not have a formal safety and industrial hygiene program. Medical services were furnished by local medical facilities. Air samples collected at the cylinder door during removal of tram cars and on the bundles of treated wood were all below the limits of analytical detection for chromium, copper, arsenic, and chromic-acid. The samples collected inside the treatment building had nondetectable concentrations of all constituents except arsenic and chromic-acid, which were 0.9 and 0.3 microgram per cubic meter, respectively.
