Abstract An industrial hygiene study was conducted at the St. Bernard One Hour Martinizing facility in Cincinnati, Ohio, on August 8, 1977, as part of an effort to characterize worker exposure to perchloroethylene in the dry cleaning industry. Four personal samples and eleven area samples were collected and analyzed for perchloroethylene. Employees' average and peak exposures were within Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards as well as the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommended standard for perchloroethylene. Recommendations to further reduce exposure are made.
