Abstract
A health hazard evaluation of roll fabrication operations at the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Industries (SIC-3229) plant, Mt. Zion, Illinois, revealed that airborne asbestos (1332214) fibers in excess of the proposed OSHA standard prevailed at the baghouse emptying operation and at the nailing operation. The teardown operator was exposed to excessive levels of asbestos when using poor techniques. The grooving operation was characterized by exposure to asbestos fibers in excess of the proposed, but not of the existing OSHA standard. Recommendations are made to reduce worker exposure to airborne asbestos.
