Union Carbide Corporation, Institute, West Virginia: Task II Ethylene Oxide Survey Report of the Plant Contact.
NIOSH 1977 Aug:20 pages
Worker exposures to ethylene-oxide (75218) and its derivatives were determined at Union Carbide Corporation (SIC-286) in Institute, West Virginia, on June 15 and 16, 1977. About 1,840 workers were employed, and the company provided safety and industrial hygiene programs. Medical services were furnished by two full time physicians and nine nurses. Samples taken at three work sites contained ethylene-oxide concentrations of less than 1 part per million (ppm), compared with the OSHA standard of 50ppm. The author concludes that further evaluation of ethylene-oxide exposure at this facility is not warranted.
