Abstract Worker exposures to styrene, acetone, toluene, and methyl-ethyl-ketone (MEK) were determined at Uniflite (SIC-2865) in Bellingham, Washington on February 2, 1978. Styrene concentrations ranged from 8.7 to 161.3 parts per million (ppm), compared with the permissible exposure limit (PEL) of 100 ppm. Acetone concentrations ranged from 19.0 to 182.6 ppm, compared with the PEL of 200 ppm, MEK concentrations ranged from 25 to 275 ppm, compared with the threshold limit value (TLV) of 200 ppm. The author concludes that if the facility has the personnel information required for a mortality study, it should be included in the NIOSH study.
