Abstract
Environmental air samples were analyzed for methyl-isobutyl-ketone (108101), toluene (108883), aliphatic-naphthas, acetone (67641), and wood dust at Utefab, Limited (SIC-2541), in Fort Duchesne, Utah on September 13 to 15, 1976. A representative of the Indian Health Service requested the evaluation on behalf of approximately 40 workers. All organic vapor concentrations were well within the OSHA standards of 1000 parts per million (ppm), 100ppm, 100ppm, 200 milligrams per cubic meter (mg/cu m), and 5mg/cu m for acetone, methyl-isobutyl-ketone, toluene, aliphatic-naphtha, and wood dust, respectively. One sander was exposed to excessive wood dust concentrations. The author recommends hearing protection for table saw workers, implementation of engineering controls to reduce dust concentrations for the sander, cleaning of the paint storage room, and other general safety measures.
