Worker exposures to Saccharin (81072) were surveyed at the Sherwin- Williams Company (SIC-2869), Chemicals Division in Cincinnati, Ohio on March 30, 1977. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational saccharin exposure. Approximately 13 of the 186 employees at the facility were assigned to the saccharin production operations surveyed. The company had no formal safety and industrial hygiene program. Medical services were provided by a local physician. Personnel records provided demographic information and department assignments. The authors conclude that this workforce should not be included in the saccharin hazard survey because of the small number of workers exposed to saccharin, the short length of saccharin exposure, and the potential prior exposure of several workers to the bladder carcinogens benzidine and beta-naphthylamine.
