           MEMORANDUM FOR Commander, Medical Group (Provisional)

           SUBJECT: Medical Surveillance of Soldiers Performing CARC Painting


           1.   On 3 Jun 91, 1 met with LTC Bailey, VII Corps Redeployment
           Surgeon.    We discussed the medical surveillance of soldiers
           performing CARC painting.
           2. Basci on the meeting, I believe that effective administrative
           control, engineering controls, and personal protective equipment
           are being used in a professional manner. Also, the likelihood of
           the soldiers being injured due to CARC painting procedure is almost
           nil.

           3.   Through mutual agreement, soldiers performing CARC painting
           will be evaluated through a questionnaire. This will be directed
           specif ically towards a risk assessment of inadvertent or accidental
           exposure to CARC paint or solvents. LTC Bailey will implement the
           use of the questionnaire.

           4. 1 recommend the questionnaire be utilized as a form of medical
           surveillance instead of performing laboratory procedures. I feel
           the questionnaire and the algorithm produced by it will provide
           efficient, safe and cost effective measures to protect the health
           of the soldiers performing the painting.
