Abstract
Worker exposure to paint materials were studied at Drexel Heritage Furnishing, Incorporated (SIC-2512) in Drexel, North Carolina, from July 31 to August 1, 1978. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational paint materials exposure. Approximately 1,000 of the employees at the facility were assigned to the finishing operations surveyed. Medical services were furnished by one nurse in each complex. Personnel records provided demographic information and department assignments. Numerous types of wood stains, thinners, solvent, sealers, lacquers, printing inks, and fillers and glazes were used.
