Abstract
Worker exposure and health effects were investigated at Wylain, Inc., Friedrich Division in San Antonio, Texas on August 21 and 22, 1978. The facility was under considerations for inclusion in an in depth epidemiological, industrial hygiene, and medical study of health hazards in the painting trades (SIC-3479). Air conditioner cabinets and commercial refrigeration decorative panels were painted at this facility. In the baked enamel department of the facility there were 53 hourly employees. Personnel records were kept and a medical program was maintained, which included the services of one full time nurse. Preemployment physicals were required. The plant safety director managed the industrial hygiene program. Engineering controls included ventilation to control possible hazardous exposures. The authors conclude that exposure to substances used in the painting processes is probably very slight. No unusual or highly toxic substances are used in the painting process. The authors recommend that this facility not be included in further in depth study of possible health hazards.
