Approximately 14 of the employees at this facility were involved in operations that entailed potential PCP exposure. The company had no formal medical or industrial hygiene program. A safety program was in effect. Medical services were provided by local hospitals and workers trained in first aid PCP concentrations were 0.04 milligrams per cubic meter (mg/CuM) using the NIOSH sampling method and less than 0.13 mg/CuM using a silica gel tube.
