Abstract
Worker exposures to paints were surveyed at the BDP Company, Division of Carrier Corporation, (SIC-3585) in City of Industry, California on November 8, 1978. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational paint exposure. Approximately 14 of the 950 employees at the Facility were assigned to the painting operations that were surveyed. The company maintained an in-house medical clinic staffed by two nurses. An industrial hygiene and safety program was also maintained by the company. Personnel records provided demographic information, department assignments, and absence reports. Approximately 18,400 gallons of acrylic enamel paint per year were used during spray painting operations. Another 11,840 gallons of alkyd-amine enamel paint per year were used in similar operations. Ventilation control systems in the painting area appeared adequate for minimizing worker exposures. The authors conclude that this workforce is probably not suitable for the painting hazard survey because of the small numbers of potentially exposed painters, although the facility might be useful for an evaluation of industrial hygiene exposures.
