Abstract
Worker exposures to styrene (100425) were determined at Chrysler Boat Corporation (SIC-3079) in Plano, Texas, from January 30 to February 1, 1979. The survey was undertaken as part of a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational styrene exposure. Approximately 56 of the workers at this facility were assigned to the resin laminating operations that were surveyed. Charcoal tube personal samples from styrene ranged from 29.5 to 158 parts per million (ppm), with a mean of 90.1 ppm; the OSHA standard is 100ppm. Personal acetone (67641) samples ranged from 16.5 to 351ppm, well below the OSHA standard of 1000ppm. The author recommends improvements in exhaust ventilation and proper use of respirators to reduce worker exposures to styrene.
