Abstract
A team of NIOSH industrial hygienists surveyed the Ideal Cement facility in Okay, Arkansas as part of a study of the effects of materials found in Portland Cement facilities on the human respiratory system. Personal respirable dust and total dust samples were collected for a subset of workers. Airborne dust samples were collected at locations in the facility selected to represent employee work stations. Bulk material samples were collected for analysis. The air was analyzed for toxic gases. Respirable and total dust levels for most of the jobs at this facility were below recommended exposure levels. One sample from a conveyor operator exceeded recommended limits for total nuisance particulate of 10mg/m3. Detectable levels of quartz (14808607) were found in four samples from workers associated with raw materials. The author concludes that the facility is providing a healthful work environment for its employees and that no specific corrective actions were needed or recommended.
