Personal and area air samples were analyzed to evaluate exposures to titanium (7440326) at the Stainless Equipment Company (SIC-3490) in Englewood, Colorado on June 16 and 18, 1980. An evaluation request came from an authorized representative of the management on behalf of an unspecified number of workers. Personal samples were well below the OSHA standard of 15 milligrams per cubic meter for titanium. Area samples were below the limit detection. The author concludes that no health hazard existed at the time of the survey. He recommends that the use of respirators be continued, that any raw titanium that looks unusual not be annealed, and that eating, drinking and smoking be prohibited in work areas.
