Abstract
A walk-through survey was conducted at the Aerovox Industries, Inc., New Bedford, Massachusetts, on January 5, 1976, to determine if an industrial hygiene and mortality study of workers exposed to polychlorinated-biphenyls (1336363) at this facility would be feasible. Oil-filled capacitors (SIC-3629) are manufactured at this plant. The plant, current operations, medical program, personnel records, industrial hygiene and the safety program are described. Potential health hazards observed are exposure to polychlorinated- biphenyls and trichloroethylene (79016). It is recommended that this facility should be considered in the development of a cohort for a mortality study because the facility has very complete records and has not altered its operation substantially.
