Medical and environmental evaluation of hazards of exposure of plastics workers to fumes of formaldehyde (50000) (acceptable ceiling concentration 5 ppm), indicates that toxic exposure does not exist at the concentrations found in the work environment. Toxic effects of formaldehyde are prolonged dryness of the nasal mucous membranes and general discomfort. Exposures to intense noise are found to lead to loss in hearing. Recommendations include provision of protective equipment to workers.
