An environmental survey conducted at an industrial facility revealed that toluene concentration levels measured in manual painting inside welding fittings exceeded the established federal standard for this agent. The only manifestations from exposure to substances used in the work place, such as toluene (108883), acetone (67641), acrolein, barium (7440393), chromium (7440473), carbon-monoxide (630080), cobalt (7440484), and copper (7440508), fume, fluorine (7782414), iron oxide fume, isopropyl alcohol (67630), magnesium-oxide (1309484) fume, manganese (7439965), molybdenum (7439987), nickel (7440020), ozone (10028156), sodium-hydroxide (1310732), and oil mist, were mild narcosis and nausea found in the painting area. Sound levels measured in grinding operations exceeded the standard for noise.
