A survey was performed to observe the manufacture of filtration paper (SIC-2621) using small diameter glass fibers and to take preliminary air samples in these operations. The results show that there is possible significant exposure to potentially respirable glass fiber in the fiber handling operations. Recommendations are made for engineering controls and appropriate work practices to keep glass fiber exposure to a minimum, as well as for the initiation of medical surveillance and air sampling programs.
