Walk-Through Survey Report of the National Tanning and Trading Corporation, Peabody, Massachusetts.
NIOSH 1980 Apr:5 pages
The National Tanning and Trading Corporation (SIC-3111) (NTTC) in Peabody, Massachusetts was surveyed on September 7, 1979 to determine if its employees should be included in a cohort mortality study of workers in the tanning industry. Personnel records were reviewed, and four air samples were collected for analysis. All air samples contained N-nitrosodimethylamine (62759) concentrations ranging from 0.6 to 0.87 micrograms per cubic meter (micrograms/m3), and three samples contained N-nitrosomorpholine concentrations ranging from 0.06 to 0.17 micrograms/m3. At the time of the survey, the facility was in the process of liquidation. Because of this, the authors conclude that it would not be suitable for inclusion in the mortality study.
