Environmental and medical evaluations of a plant producing cellophane reveal that episodic acute exposures to carbon-disulfide (75150) have occurred, provoking toxic symptoms in chemical operators. Medical evidence is not sufficient to conclude that chronic exposure causing illness is occurring. Recommendations include rotation of workers, improved maintenance of ventilation systems, use of respirators, and a safety training program.
