Abstract Worker exposures to organophosphorus compounds were surveyed at the Michigan Casting Center (SIC-3465) Ford Motor Company in Flat Rock, Michigan on March 14, 1980. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a NIOSH study of the neurological effects of occupational organophosphorus compounds exposure. Approximately 500 of the 2,400 employees at the facility were assigned the modling department surveyed. The company maintained a safety and industrial hygiene program. Medical services were provided by two full time physicians, several nurses and workers trained in first aid. Airborne concentrations of organophosphate esters ranged from 0.028 milligrams per cubic meter (mg/cu m) at the hydraulic system pump station to 0.024 mg/cu m at the hydraulic fluid storage facility. These concentrations were well below OSHA standard of 3.0 mg/cu m. The author concludes that this workforce should not be included in the organophosphorus compounds hazard survey because of the small number of workers who are potentially exposed to these compounds.
