Abstract
Environmental and personal sampling were conducted, and blood specimens were collected on September 26 to 27, and on November 13 to 14, 1979 at the Briggs and Stratton Corporation (SIC-3714) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to determine employee requested the evaluation on behalf of 14 workers. Lead and tin employee exposures to lead (7439921) and other solder products. An unidentified concentrations in all samples were below the OSHA permissible exposure time weighed average limits of 50 micrograms per cubic meter and 2 milligrams per cubic meter, respectively. No detectable concentrations of formaldehyde were found. Only one worker had an elevated blood lead value. Six workers had free erythrocyte protoprophyrin, (FEP) values greater than the recommended limit of 870 micrograms per liter. The author concludes that no hazardous exposures exist at this facility. He recommends that all individuals with elevated blood lead or FEP values be retested, periodic environmental sampling be conducted, personnel hygiene be stressed, ventilation be provided in certain work areas, and that ventilation systems be monitored.
