Abstract
Worker exposure and health effects were investigated at Myers Christiansen Company, a general paint contracting firm (SIC-1721) in Kensington, Maryland on September 6, 1978. The firm was part of a study of painting in the construction trades. The firm employed 40 to 75 full time painters. Records were maintained on the type and manufacturer of the paint used, the amount used per day, and the method of application. Most of the paint was applied with brush and roller; all spray painting was of the airless type. Interior work was done almost entirely with latex paint; oil paints were used for fine decorative work. A review of contractor records indicated that it would be feasible to study a group of about 600 workers and to identify specific job exposures for painters. The authors conclude that the number of deceased may not be large enough to complete a mortality study.
