NIOSH 1976 Oct:16 pages
A health hazard evaluation was conducted by NIOSH in the mica (12001262) paper production area of General Electric's Coshocton, Ohio, plant (SIC-2649). Environmental sampling and medical sampling were done regarding potential exposure to mica, free crystalline silica, and nuisance dust. Findings of this evaluation indicate that some agent, presumably the mica, is causing nasal irritation. Clinical evidence of irritation was observed. No long range permanent or disabling effects would be expected.
