Abstract
A hazard evaluation and technical assistance survey of radio frequency (RF) hazards in the Seamans Building Systems, plastic welding operations in Florida is reported. The product of the facility is a fabric structure (SIC-9999) or cover supported by steel frame or air. Field data, when compared with American National Standards Institute Criteria, showed that while RF machine operations were similar, one machine produced significantly greater magnetic and electric fields. Moreover, the presence of voltage tubes greater than 10kv presents a potential for exposures to X- rays, which are an unwanted byproduct; welding done in the same location might also constitute a hazard if polyvinyl-chloride (75014) were heated to decomposition.
