Abstract The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health is charged with the investigation of hazardous substances in the workplace. As part of this mission, the Division of Field Studies and Clinical Investigations has been involved in the study of byssinosis in several facilities dealing with raw cotton. This report is a combined environmental and medical survey of a mattress manufacturing facility initially designed to assess differences in exposures between this and other facilities and differences in reaction by employees to the exposures. Because of various factors, the report as it is here presented is a less general one, and is primarily a descriptive analysis of conditions as they exist in a single facility.
