Abstract A walk-through survey was conducted at Nalco Chemical Company, Garyville, Louisiana; a manufacturer of acrylamide and polyacrylamide. The purpose of the survey was to obtain information on the facility, workforce, processes, personal records, medical records, and industrial hygiene program for an acrylamide exposure study, being conducted by NIOSH researchers. Based on this preliminary survey, approximately 40 employees were identified as being potentially exposed to acrylamide. Since this plant is one of four acrylamide manufacturing sites in the United States, an in-depth industrial hygiene survey should be conducted to determine exposure levels.
