Abstract
As part of the Cement Workers Morbidity Study, an industrial hygiene survey was conducted at the Marquette Cement Company in Rockmart, Georgia. Environmental sampling was conducted to determined respirable and total dust concentrations of various contaminants. For most jobs at this site the levels of respirable and total dust were below the permissible limits. Four respirable dust samples from workers in the packhouse exceeded the ACGIH recommended levels for nuisance particulates. Nineteen respirable dust samples form workers associated with raw materials contained detectable levels of quartz (14808607). Eight of these samples contained concentrations greater than 100 micrograms/cubic meter. Possible overexposure to welding fumes were noted for welders. The authors recommendations for reducing exposures included improving the design of the ventilation system, using proper clean up procedures, using personal protective equipment, and monitoring welding fumes.
