||Implementing safer alternatives to lithographic cleanup solvents to protect the health of workers and the environment
||Mar. 2009, Vol.6, No.3, p.174-187. 40 ref.
||This survey evaluated the good work practices in the use of volatile organic compounds in cleanup operations in the lithographic printing sector in the United States. Data were collected by means of site visits, focus groups, interviews, workshops and pilot projects. Overall, it was found that inhalation exposure to hazardous cleanup solvents was prevalent and that printers were generally not aware of safer alternatives. Implications of these findings are discussed.
