Abstract
A walk-through survey was conducted at the Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Company, Chalmette, Louisiana, on May 20, 1977, to provide a background in the horizontal Sonderberg aluminum reduction process (SIC-3334) for NIOSH personnel involved with the industry-wide aluminum (7429905) study so that possible sources of contaminants and areas of exposure could be more clearly defined. Potential hazards observed include: particulate polycyclic organic matter, dusts, fluorides, and heat. Although the pots are ventilated, several instances were noted in which the side panels of the hoods were opened needlessly or were left open after work being done inside was finished. Even with the panels closed there were many leaks in the enclosure system, allowing the release of smoke and fumes from the pot.
