||Estimation of cumulative exposures to naphtha at an automobile fuel-injector manufacturing plant
||Sep. 1993, Vol.54, No.9, p.480-487. Illus. 17 ref.
||Estimates of cumulative exposure to naphtha were derived for workers at an automobile fuel-injector manufacturing plant. The approach to exposure estimation involved three aspects: a marked association between indoor naphtha air concentration and outdoor temperature was modelled and applied to detailed historical temperature data to calculate cumulative exposure estimates; the large number of investigator-generated air samples allowed the use of analysis of variance to compare alternative job-grouping schemes; the young age of the plant and few process changes allowed for historical exposure estimates with a high degree of confidence. The derived estimates of cumulative exposure appear to offer a firm basis for epidemiologic analysis of the relation of exposure to health.
