Abstract
An environmental survey conducted at a plant manufacturing aerosol camps containing carburetor and choke cleaner shows that both individual and combined standards for perchloroethylene (127184) and diacetone-alcohol (123422) in the air are exceeded by 3 to 4.8 times. In the absence of respirators, workers reported irritation of the skin and respiratory tract, and central nervous system disorders. Sound levels in certain operations exceed the standard for noise exposure. Recommendations are made to the management to obviate the observed and potential hazards to the approximately 30 employees affected.
