Abstract
A walk through industrial hygiene survey was conducted at Intel Corporation (SIC-3674) in South Clara, California on April 27, 1981 to examine worker exposure to potentially hazardous agents used in bipolar and metal oxide semiconductor technology. No serious deficiencies in the safety and health program covering the approximately 400 employees were found. An adequate ventilation system was in use at the facility. The facility had a safety committee, an industrial hygienist, two on call physicians, a registered nurse, and an emergency response team. Preemployment and annual physical examinations were provided for all employees. Both area and personal air sampling is conducted regularly. The 1980 injury and illness rate for this facility was 2.3 per 100 workers. The author notes that the major cause of work related fatalities is electrocution during maintenance operations on the high power process units and concludes that the health and safety programs at this facility is exemplary.
