Abstract
An industrial hygiene survey in a solvent refined coal pilot facility in Fort Lewis, Washington is described. The refining process, the facility, its work force, and the health and safety programs used by the facility are discussed. The sampling program, schedule, conditions, and results of the survey are described. Sampling of polynuclear-aromatics (PNA), aromatic amines, other organic, particulates, trace elements, and physical agent identified in the survey are discussed. The existing engineering control measures in the facilities are assessed. The authors conclude that the only potential hazard is the polynuclear aromatics, and they recommend that the process stream and the workplace environment be extensively studied, as well as the long term effects of PNAs.
