||Exposure to vinyl fluoride (VF) and vinyl bromide (VB) in manufacturing plants and to VF in a polymerisation plant were evaluated for 8h periods during 3 work shifts in each plant. In production operations VF exposure was <2ppm and in polymerisation operations the time-weighted average exposure was 1.9ppm. VB exposure ranged from <0.5 to 6.3ppm and exposure to ethylene dibromide, in VB manufacturing, ranged from 0.2-0.57ppm.
