Abstract The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) conducted an environmental/medical survey to determine employees' exposures to inorganic lead at KW Battery Division, Skokie, IL. The survey was accomplished on May 17-19, June 2-3, and August 11-12, 1977. Based on medical results it appears that the bag house rupture occurring sometime in the fall of 1976 led to excessive lead exposure with a number of workers being seen and treated at Cook County Hospital. Review of company lead monitoring data suggests that the majority of workers treated possibly had blood lead values over 60 microgram/100 ml at the time they were seen. Almost none of the workers seen at Cook County were available at the time of the NIOSH study.
