Abstract
Worker exposures to n-nitroso compounds were investigated at Pacific Steel Foundry (SIC-3321) in Oakland, California on October 3, 1980. The company was surveyed as part of a NIOSH study to determine the formation of n-nitroso compounds during the manufacturing of iron and steel castings. The foundry employed 273 workers. Air was sampled at five locations to determine the presence of n-nitroso compounds or amines. N-nitrosodimethylamine (62759) was found in one area at barely detectable concentration. No n-nitroso compounds or amines were found at any other location. The authors conclude that there is no significant worker exposure to n-nitroso compounds or their precursors in the foundry atmosphere.
