Título Health hazards in a small automotive body repair shop
Información bibliográfica 1984, Vol.28, No.1, p.19-29. Illus. 12 ref.
Resumen This survey is based on a 1-year study of a typical body repair shop in the USA. Airborne hazards include: organic solvents used during spray painting (of 10 substances tested, only xylene (100-230ppm) and methyl cellosolve acetate (30-45ppm) exceeded TLV-STEL values, and only during the winter, when spraybooth fans had to be turned off); isocyanates (4-9% by weight of the enamel paint used - air concentration determination unsuccessful); metals in paint pigments (highest levels measured: chromium - 0.49mg/m3, cadmium - 0.48mg/m3, lead - 0.64mg/m3); dust (highest level: 39.8mg/m3). Other hazards: noise (highest level: 110-115dB(A) for 30min); vibration due to pneumatic hand tools (Raynaud's phenomenon symptoms reported by workers). Recommendations based on the results are listed.
