Abstract
Worker exposures to styrene (100425) and acetone (67641) were determined at Tollycraft (SIC-3079) in Kelso, Washington, from June 12 to 16, 1978. The survey was part of a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational styrene and acetone exposure. Approximately 140 of the employees at this facility were assigned to the production areas that were surveyed. The company had no formal industrial hygiene program, although it did maintain a safety program. Medical services were furnished by local medical facilities and employees trained in first-aid. None of the 53 samples for airborne styrene and acetone exceeded the OSHA standards of 100 and 1,000 parts per million (ppm), respectively. Eight hour styrene exposures ranged from 7.3 to 84.7 ppm. Acetone concentrations ranged from 8.2 to 396ppm.
