Abstract
Worker exposures to paints and solvents were examined at the Barber Greene Company (SIC-3531) in Aurora, Illinois, on December 12, 1978. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of health hazards in the painting industry. Approximately 41 of the employees at the facility were assigned to the painting operations area surveyed. The company had no formal safety and industrial hygiene program. Medical first aid services were provided by a resident nurse and industrial hygiene services were furnished by an insurance company on a request basis. Personnel records provided demographic information and work positions. The authors conclude that due to the small number of employees exposed to paint vapors and mists at this facility, an in-depth industrial hygiene study is not applicable. They recommend that this facility be considered for further studies in view of the type of painting operations employed at the facility.
