NIOSH 1976 Nov:30 pages
An industrial hygiene survey was conducted at Monsanto Industrial Chemical Company (SIC-2869) in Bridgeport, New Jersey on October 6, 1976 to determine if a more detailed survey were needed to quantify worker exposure to benzyl-chloride (100447). The facility had extensive medical and safety programs and provided all necessary personal protective equipment for its 170 employees. A total of 20 employees worked directly with benzyl-chloride. These workers were not fully evaluated to determine job function dose. Atmospheric samples contained benzyl-chloride concentrations of less than detectable to 1.25 parts per million. The author concludes that there are background concentrations of benzyl-chloride at this facility, but that short term high exposure may be possible during certain processes.
