Analysis of samples of airborne particulates and medical evaluation at an industrial facility reveals that antimony (7440360), asbestos (1332214), chromic acid (7738945), copper (7440508), cyanide, iron (7439896), lead (7439921), nickel (7440020), cutting oils, sodium hydroxide (1310732), tin (7440315), and zinc stearate (557051) are not expected to cause toxic effects in exposed workers. The reported number of cases of dermatitis, upper respiratory irritation and eye irritation are apparently episodic and not judged to be excessive in the plant studied.
