NIOSH 1979 Oct:42 pages
Worker exposures to paint materials were studied at the Coal Creek Station, Cooperative Power Association (SIC-4911) in Underwood, North Dakota, on February 27, 1979. The facility was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational paint materials exposure. Approximately 30 painters were employed under contract at this facility. The company had no formal safety and industrial hygiene program. Medical services were furnished by two staff nurses. Personnel records were thought to be maintained by the painters' union. About 20,000 gallons of paint were expected to be used for the current contract project, and consisted of acrylic and oil alkyd, polyamine cured epoxy, epoxy coal tar, inorganic zinc primer, and modified silicone. The authors conclude that this work force should be considered for inclusion in the painting hazards study.
