An environmental evaluation performed at the Weyerhaeuser Company (SIC-8021, SIC-0851), which is engaged in all phases of the reforestation process, failed to demonstrate the presence of Thiram (137268) exceeding the existing Federal standard in both the nursery and tree planting operations. Medical evaluation was directed towards the determination of levels of Thiram in the blood of nursery workers and tree planters, as well as the symptomatology, blood pressure and serum dopamine beta-hydroxylase activity of the exposed workers.
