Abstract
Worker exposures to potentially hazardous physical and chemical agents were determined at the Solarex Corporation (SIC-3674) in Rockville, Maryland, on May 3, 1979. The survey was part of a NIOSH health study of newly developing energy technologies. The company employed approximately 75 operating personnel, and had no formal safety or industrial hygiene program. Medical services were provided by local hospitals. The facility lacked a well organized environmental engineering control program. No toxic agents, other than a priming agent, were used. The resist patterning operation was inadequately ventilated. The general housekeeping was marginal in some areas. The author recommends that the diffusion furnace room be segregated on its own ventilation system with gas cylinders located in a separate room, and electroplating baths be relocated under hoods or draw slot exhausts.
