Abstract
Environmental and medical investigations of grain handling activities were carried out at the Cargill Elevator (SIC-0723). Workers experienced negligible exposures to vapors of carbon- tetrachloride (56235) and carbon-disulfide (75150), potentially toxic components of the fumigant Weevil-Cide. Grain dust exposures were low, but the potential for significant dust exposure in some areas was demonstrated. No cases of severe skin problems were found during the survey, although malathion (121755) may have been responsible for several reported cases of severe dermatitis. Recommendations are made for surveillance and health maintenance because of the known toxicity of the agents used.
