Abstract
Worker exposures to polynuclear-aromatic-hydrocarbons (PAHs) were determined at the Aluminum Company of America (SIC-3361), Wenatchee Works, in Wenatchee, Washington, on August 22 to 24, 1978. The survey was part of a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational PAH exposure. Approximately 355 of the workers at this facility were assigned to the potroom and carbon facility surveyed. Benzene soluble fraction concentrations ranged from less than 0.03 micrograms per cubic meter (CuM) to 0.35 micrograms/m3. Chrysene (218019) concentrations ranged from less than 0.14 micrograms/m3 to 3.00 micrograms/m3. Pyrene (129000) concentrations were in the range of less than 0.30 to 5.30 micrograms/m3. Fluoranthene (206440) concentrations ranged from less than 0.06 to 5.40 micrograms/m3. Benz(a)anthracene (56553) and benzo(a)pyrene (50328) concentrations ranged from less than 0.07 to 2.90 micrograms/m3, and from 0.02 to 2.50 micrograms/m3, respectively. There were no occupational health standards for these PAHs at the time of the survey.
