Abstract
Worker exposures to paint materials were studied at ACF Industries, Amcar Division (SIC-3743) in Milton, Pennsylvania, on June 6, 1979. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational paint materials exposure. Approximately 12 of the employees at this facility were assigned to the painting operations that were surveyed. The company had a safety and industrial health program. Medical services were furnished by a part-time physician and one nurse per work shift. Personnel records provided demographic information, department assignments, and seniority listings. Approximately 2,000 gallons of paint were used per week, including zinc-chromate primers, and vinyl- alkyd finishes. The paint booth utilized an exhaust ventilation system, and all spray painters were equipped with air supplied respirators. The authors conclude that this workforce should be included in the NIOSH painting hazards survey.
