Abstract
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) requests assistance in preventing asthma, other respiratory diseases, and death from exposure to methylenebis(phenyl isocyanate) (MDI). More than 10,000 U.S. workers are potentially exposed to MDI during spray-on truck bed lining operations. This Alert summarizes four case reports: one death and several incidents of asthma or other respiratory disease following exposure to MDI during spray-on truck bed lining operations. Information about preventing adverse health effects from exposure to MDI is urgently needed by workers, employers, small business owners, and physicians and other health care providers. NIOSH requests that editors of trade journals, safety and health officials, labor union leaders, educators, and MDI suppliers and manufacturers bring the recommendations in this Alert to the attention of all employers and workers at risk of MDI exposure through spray-on and related applications. Your assistance will help prevent asthma, other respiratory disease, and death.
