Abstract
A study was made of working conditions at the Ford Motor Company Kansas City Assembly Plant (SIC-3711), Kansas City, Missouri as part of a larger study of worker exposure to ethylene-glycol ethers. During the time of the survey, 27 different types of paints/coatings were used at the facility. 2-Ethoxyethyl-acetate (111159) (2-EEA) was used in three paints for passenger car painting and in four paints for trucks. Approximately 12 and 22 gallons of 2-EEA containing paints were used for passenger cars and trucks, respectively, during the 2 week period preceding the study. The paints and coatings were either delivered daily or pumped through a recirculating system to the spray booths from the Paint Kitchen at the site. Various solvents were blended with the incoming paints in the Paint Kitchen. Spray painters wore cloth coveralls, rubber boots, nylon gloves and surgical or baseball caps. Health screening includes audiograms, vision tests, blood tests, and urine tests and were performed annually. The authors conclude that, due to the small number of workers with potential exposure to 2-EEA and the low exposure levels in general at this facility, that this site should not be included in an indepth study of ethylene-glycol ether exposures.
