Abstract
An on site visit was made to the Santa Rosa facility of American Cyanamid (CIS-2824), Milton, Florida for the purpose of examining worker exposure to acrylonitrile (107131) (AN) during the production of acrylic polymers. At the time of the on site visit, about 320 workers were employed at the facility. The information obtained through interviews was consistent with jobs and areas where exposures to AN were the highest and how conditions had changed over the years. Production employees have had the highest exposure compared to maintenance workers who still were more exposed than engineers who had the lowest level of exposure. However, maintenance workers and engineers will be the more difficult groups to determine precisely to what degree the exposures did occur. The greatest impact on reducing AN exposures was brought about by the passage of the OSHA standard promulgated in 1978.
