Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, HHE 76-26-320, 1976 Aug; :1-5
A health hazard evaluation was conducted in the storage battery charging area, brewery warehouse department, of the Adolph Coors Company (SIC-2082), to determine the validity of employee complaint regarding irritation of the eye, nose and throat, nausea and vomiting, as well as the possible threat of an explosion from welding and charging batteries in the same area. Environmental sampling revealed that the employees were not exposed to toxic concentrations of sulfuric-acid (7664939). However, medical questionnaires indicate that the irritative phenomena occurred particularly during week-end charge of the batteries.
