Abstract
Environmental samples were analyzed for mirex (2385855) and lindane (58899) at Greif Brothers Corporation in Niagara Falls, New York on March 6, 1981. A representative of the United Steel Workers of America, Local 12256 requested the evaluation on behalf of an unspecified number of workers. Three samples of dust collected from horizontal surfaces in the facility failed to reveal any quantifiable amounts of mirex or lindane. The author concludes that a hazard from mirex and lindane exposure does not exist at this facility.
