Abstract
Medical interviews, physical examinations, laboratory testing, and information regarding substances used in the lead chemicals department of the Eagle Picher Industries (SIC-2819), lead (7439921) to the conclusion that lead exposure has resulted in excessive concentrations of lead in the blood of the exposed workers. The latter presented symptoms consistent with lead intoxication as well as signs of lead toxicity including anemia, peripheral neuropathy, and kidney disease. The results indicate that lead exposure at this plant presents both an acute and chronic intoxication hazard to workers.
