Abstract
A walk through survey of worker exposure to potentially hazardous agents in the Cornell-Dubilier Electronic facility in New Bedford, Massachusetts in reviewed. The facility structure, design and products are described. The CMR mice capacitor, AC oil capacitor, and the transmitting mice capacitor process steps are reviewed. The work force characteristics, the medical, health and safety programs and the recordkeeping systems are described. The industrial hygiene practices which are followed are discussed. The author recommends that a substitute for the barrier creams used and for the ground silica used in the durez coating operation be found, that ventilation systems in specific areas and the housekeeping procedures be evaluated, that air sampling be carried out near the zinc plating machines, and that the trichloroethylene vapor released from the temperature controlled degreaser be monitored.
