Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, IWS 84-12, 1978 Feb; :1-4
An industrial hygiene survey to assess personnel records and possible exposures to acrylonitrile (107131) (AN) in the Monsanto Plastics and Resins Company, (SIC-307) Addyston, Ohio, for potential use in a retrospective cohort mortality/industrial hygiene survey is reported. The plant is involved in the production of AN polymers (SIC-2821). Levels of exposure to AN vary with the process use. It is postulated that before 1974 levels of exposure to AN may have been greater than 100ppm during periods of peak exposure. Personal air samples taken by the company during 1977 are all below 20ppm with most below 10ppm. The company has an extensive medical program including health maintenance, and individually designed annual physical examinations. Tests considered relevant to occupational exposure are conducted on a regular basis. It is maintained that the personnel records contain suitable data for use in a mortality study.
