Abstract
Environmental survey and medical evaluation of employees in a rubber hose manufacturing facility, indicating that air concentrations of styrene (100425), toluene (108883), vinyl pyridine (1337811), toluene-2-diisocyanate (584849), formaldehyde (50000), butadiene (106990), methyl chloroform (71556), and resorcinol (108463) are below hazardous levels. Reported symptoms include sore throat, burning or itching eyes, cough, tiredness, running nose, numbness or tingling sensations, and redness of eyes. Potential toxic hazards are considered possible for the future. Recommendations include recordkeeping of formulations used, employee information on hazards, reporting of exposures, industrial hygiene evaluation of all chemicals used, and request for health hazard evaluation if complaints occur.
