Abstract
Worker exposure to sulfuric-acid (7664939) mist was studied at the Inland Steel Company (SIC-3312) in East Chicago, Indiana, on March 21, 1979. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational sulfuric-acid mist exposure. Approximately 112 of the employees at this facility were assigned to the pickling operations that were surveyed. The company had a safety and industrial hygiene program. Medical services were provided by 4 full-time physicians, 16 nurses and 5 paramedics. Personnel records furnished demographic information and department assignments. Past exposures to sulfuric-acid were not recorded, and current exposure data was not available. The author recommends that this workforce be included in the sulfuric-acid mist study.
