  1. An outbreak of naphthalene di-isocyanate-induced asthma in a plastics factory.

    Article - En anglais

    Seven cases of possible naphthalene di-isocyanate-related occupational asthma occurred in 1987 and 1988.

    These cases were reported to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health by personnel at a Midwest factory that manufactured plastic wheels for fork-lift trucks.

    The reporting of cases prompted (a) an evaluation of the workplace, including a medical screening of workers, to detect additional cases ; and (b) an industrial-hygiene survey to determine the level of exposure to isocyanates.
