Abstract The purpose of the report is to document past and present worker exposure to toluene and to assess the feasibility of a retrospective cohort mortality study. During Task 1 of this effort, a literature survey was conducted on toluene and personal contacts made to identify a cohort of workers exposed to pure toluene. As a result of this effort, recommendations were made to investigate toluene-based adhesive manufacturers and users. National Starch and Chemical Company was one of six selected as a manufacturer, and the results of the walk-through survey are included in this report.
