Abstract
A survey was conducted at the CAN DO Coal Gasification Facility (SIC- 5161), in Hazelton, Pennsylvania on May 28, 1981 to assess control technology and industrial hygiene measures used with the Wellman Galusha gasifier. No formal safety program was in effect. An industrial hygiene support program was being provided by Oak Ridge National Laboratories to assist in protecting employees and to characterize exposures to potential health hazards during startup. Preemployment physical examinations were provided and annual physicals were planned. Monitoring and alarm systems were installed for carbon-monoxide (630080). Industrial hygiene support activities were being conducted to identify other potential safety and health hazards. The author concludes that the management is concerned with providing a safe working environment. Recommendations include: periodic safety meetings; development of emergency procedures; training sessions for management and employees for safety and health related activities; employee participation in safety programs; formation of a safety committee; designation of a clean eating area; escape pack respirators at appropriate locations for emergency use; larger ventilation intake openings; welded joints; hinged poke hole covers; and steam injectors.
