Environmental survey to determine whether exposure to a coolant, cutting oil H-106 used in polisher machines is responsible for reports of skin irritation and sinus problems. Stoddard-solvent (8052413), used in cleaning the polishers, is the only volatile compound detected in the breathing zone, and its concentration of 20 parts per million is well below the standard of 200 parts per million. Recommendations are made that the Stoddard solvent be thoroughly removed after cleaning machines. Use of rubber gloves and aprons and protective creams are recommended to prevent dermatitis from contact with the cutting oil.
