Abstract
Environmental air samples were evaluated for worker exposures to hydrogen-chloride (7647010), isopropyl-alcohol (67630), xylene (1330207), diborane (19287457), and 1,1,1-trichloroethane (71556) at Solid State Scientific, Incorporated (SIC-3674), Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania in September, 1980 and June, 1981. The survey was requested by several company employees. All air samples showed concentrations well below environmental criteria. There were no exposures to radiation or toxic chemicals. The authors conclude that no occupational health hazard exists. They recommend worker education and counseling concerning chemicals and exposure, particularly in the first trimester of pregnancy. Corrosive chemicals and solvents should be used in lab hoods and protective gloves and goggles should be worn.
