Abstract
In July 1998, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a confidential employee request for a health hazard evaluation (HHE) concerning health effects from exposures to chemicals in the office area at Sunlite Casual Furniture Company in Sarasota, Florida. The request indicated that office employees were experiencing a variety of symptoms including fatigue, dizziness, headache, and nausea and medical problems including hematuria (blood in urine). The health concerns were primarily related to an incident which occurred on May 17, 1998, during which a chemical odor was detected in the office area. In response to the HHE request, NIOSH conducted a site visit on August 27, 1998, during which industrial hygiene and medical evaluations took place.
