Abstract
Three cases of berylliosis were investigated at Rockwell International (SIC-3721) in Anaheim, California, on November 9, 1981. In addition, previous environmental data were reviewed, and a walk through environmental survey of the facility was conducted. Approximately 30 employees were assigned to the beryllium (7440417) fabrication machine shop where the cases of berylliosis had occurred. The company maintained a medical monitoring program, and personal records provided demographic information and department assignments. Results of air sampling data from 1963 to 1981 showed all beryllium concentrations below the permissible exposure limit of 2 micrograms per cubic meter. Based on the walk through survey airborne beryllium dust appeared to be adequately controlled. The authors conclude that based on available industrial hygiene measurements, and an evaluation of existing medical data, there was not sufficient basis to warrant an expanded inquiry at this facility. They note that all three workers with berylliosis had worked at other Rockwell facilities where exposures may have been greater.
