Abstract
A survey team for NIOSH performed a Health Hazard Evaluation at Southern Bell Telephone Company, Fort Lauderdale, Florida on November 16-17, 1977. It has been determined that employees' exposures to "Quick Fix" were not found to be hazardous under the conditions of use. This determination is based on environmental measurements of airborne contaminants, a review of pertinent literature, observations of employees work practices, and results of a non-directed medical questionnaire. Several solvents (methyl chloroform and trichloroethylene) were monitored for two day during the application of "Quick Fix". The airborne concentrations were within accepted limits of exposure. Furthermore, and analysis of the bulk sample revealed that trichloroethylene was not present in "Quick Fix". Airborne concentrations of free isocyanates (methylene bisphenyl isocyanate and toluene diisocyanate) indicated that these air-borne concentrations were not detected using the prescribed sampling and analytical methods and thus were within the acceptable evaluation criteria.
