Abstract
Employees in the Litho Department of the Fibreboard Corporation Plant (SIC-2661) in Stockton, California, are not found to be exposed to toxic concentrations of dusting powders, but are exposed to airborne dust levels from the powders which exceed the State of California OSHA standard and the threshold limits for nuisance dust. Safety recommendations include servicing of exhaust ventilation systems regularly, vacuum cleaning instead of dry sweeping, and making NIOSH Certified Respirators available whenever needed.
