Abstract
Worker exposure to hydrocarbons was determined at the Avery International Adhesive Manufacturing facility (SIC-2819) in Monrovia, California on October 25, 1978. In the production area, 79 persons were employed. The workers were given annual physicals, but no nurses were employed at the facility. New employees were required to take a medical examination. There was a formal safety program and a workman's safety committee. Safety glasses were provided and required in all production areas, and respirators were available in the compounding area. The housekeeping was generally good. Exposures to hydrocarbons ranged from 50 to 300 parts per million (ppm) during the spill and in a compounding room, respectively. The hog room had concentrations of 3ppm. The author recommends a more detailed industrial hygiene survey for the facility.
