Abstract
In response to a request, an investigation was begun into possible hazardous working conditions at A-and-H Trophy (SIC-7399), Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Concern was voiced over exposure to organic solvents during silk screen printing on fabric shirts and jackets. Four breathing zone and four general room air samples were collected. The four time weighted average air concentrations for perchloroethylene (127184) ranged from 21 to 24mg/m3; methylene- chloride (75092), 106 to 174mg/m3; 1,1,1-trichloroethane (71556), 3 to 46mg/m3; xylene (1330207), 7 to 8mg/m3; and petroleum-naphtha (8030306), 16 to 24mg/m3. Medical testing indicated that all three workers and the two owners of the company had excellent lung function. The author concludes that there was a potential health hazard existed, based on the carcinogenic potential of perchloroethylene. The author recommends that specific measures be instituted to reduce environmental exposures to this chemical.
