Abstract
The proceedings of a 1979 symposium on occupational health hazard control technology in the foundry and secondary nonferrous smelting industries were presented. Information on control technology to reduce or eliminate worker exposures to chemical and physical agents was discussed. Data from existing and functioning control systems was reviewed as well as research results primarily in the areas of control of air contaminants, noise, and vibration. Topics of exposure control included substitution of less hazardous materials, processes, or equipment; process or worker isolation; ventilation; process monitoring; and work practices. Findings of recently completed NIOSH studies of control technology in the foundry and secondary nonferrous smelting industries were discussed.
