Abstract
Environmental survey and medical evaluation of employees in the machine shop of an oil refinery, indicating that exposures to cutting oils and dusts, and to fumes from metallizing by flame spraying, do not constitute health hazards in the working environment. Some instances of dermatitis and folliculitis are observed, as is a case of allergy to nickel (7440020) and irritation of eyes and upper respiratory tract. Recommendations include installation of a local exhaust system, repair and maintenance of spray metallizing booth exhausts, worker orientation in safe work practice, and safety equipment, including use of protective clothing, protective barrier creams, and personal sanitation.
