In August 2007, we toured the plant, interviewed employees, and examined their skin for irritation. We took air samples for volatile organic compounds, reviewed MSDSs and medical records, and tested workplace substances to see if they could cause skin allergy. Our evaluation found that airborne solvent exposures were low- however, production employees had the potential for skin contact with chemicals.

The predominant location of dermatitis in employees was the hands and fingers, suggesting that the most likely cause of dermatitis was direct skin exposure to chemicals. Some ingredients in workplace inks, hand wipes, and hand cleaners were known sensitizers or were found to be sensitizers by our testing.
