Abstract
Personal breathing and general area air samples were analyzed for lead (7439921), methyl-ethyl-ketone-peroxide (1338234) (MEKP), styrene (108883), xylene (1330207) and nuisance particulates at the Lance Corporation, (SIC-3269 and SIC-3914), Hudson, Massachusetts, sometime between August 20, 1979 and January 11, 1980. An authorized employer's representative of the corporation requested the evaluation for an unspecified number of employees. Twelve of the 40 samples exceeded the OSHA recommended criteria of 0.05 milligrams of lead per cubic meter of air (mg/m3). The other airborne contaminants were well below their respective OSHA recommended criteria. NIOSH concluded that a lead exposure hazard existed in the finishing and buffing areas, and a potential hazard existed in the toolroom. Recommendations included improvement of local exhaust ventilation and personal hygiene.
