Abstract
Worker exposures to asbestos (1332214), sodium-hydroxide (1310732), total welding fumes, and metal particulates were surveyed on August 12 and 24, 1982 at Drive Train Industries, Incorporated (SIC-3714), Denver, Colorado. The evaluation was requested by an employee representative on behalf of an unspecified number of workers. Personal and area air samples were analyzed, and noise levels were measured. One area air sample for nickel (7440020) exceeded the NIOSH standard of 0.015 milligrams per cubic meter. All other chemical and fiber exposures were within acceptable limits. Noise levels exceeded the NIOSH limit of 85 decibels relative to the A- weighted scale. The author concludes that a noise exposure hazard exists at this facility. He recommends improved noise engineering controls and implementation of a hearing protection and audiometric testing program.
