Abstract
A Health Hazard Evaluation investigation was conducted by NIOSH in the automatic screw machine (SIC-3541) area at Sibley Engineering and Manufacturing Company, Sulphur Springs, Arkansas, on April 7 and June 15, 1976, acting on a request from the employer regarding the exposure of workers to 1,1,1-trichloroethane (79005), oil mist and phosgene (75445). Medical interviews of 10 exposed workers and an environmental survey revealed that the employees performing duties in the automatic screw machines area were not exposed to toxic concentrations of the compounds mentioned. Environmental and medical recommendations are made to the management for possible improvement of prevailing working conditions, including periodic and preplacement medical examinations, adequate ventilation, respiratory protection when necessary, and warning signs.
