Abstract
The effects of the accidental release of Texaco 600 Transformer Oil (SIC-4469) at Frederickstown, Pennsylvania were investigated by NIOSH. After cleaning up a spill, 2 out of 8 workers complained of headache, coughing, and nervousness which persisted for 24 hours. The workers were interviewed and bulk samples of the mineral oil were analyzed for chlorobenzenes and polychlorinated-biphenyls (1336363) (PCB's). No detectable amounts of chlorobenzene or PCB's were found in the samples. Due to the low toxicity of the mineral oil and the transitory effects suffered by the exposed workers, NIOSH concludes that long term deleterious effects are unlikely.
