Abstract
On May 21, 1997, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a confidential request for a health hazard evaluation (HHE) from employees of Dorma Door Controls, Inc. located in Reamstown, Pennsylvania. The request was prompted by the occurrence of adverse health effects that employees associated with exposures to airborne contaminants from the paints and other chemicals used during the manufacture of hydraulic door closers. The request also indicated concerns about the ventilation system not continuously operating in the paint drying/arms assembly area (dryline room) of the facility. On December 3-4, 1997, investigators from NIOSH visited the Dorma facility to conduct environmental sampling when the ventilation systems that service the dryline room would be operated intermittently. Environmental samples were collected for 2-butoxyethanol (EGBE), 2(2-butoxyethoxy)ethanol(DGBE), trichloroethylene, dibutyl phthalate, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
