Abstract
Health hazard control measures, work processes, and existing control technologies used in the manual transfer of chemical powders were evaluated at Harshaw Filtrol Partnership (SIC-2815, SIC-2816), Louisville, Kentucky in May, 1984. The company employed 180 workers to produce inorganic and organic colors for the paint, printing, and coatings industries. The major dry ingredients were cadmium (7440439), selenium (7782492), lead (7439921), molybdenum (7439987), and chrome (7440473). Colors were made by mixing water and solid materials together in tanks from which the finished product was precipitated out. Solid materials were metered out from storage tanks or dumped from large bags into the mixer tanks. The precipitated finished product was metered from the mixer into bags and other containers. Local and general exhaust ventilation was provided along with safety glasses, hard hats, respirators, face shields, and protective clothing. Workers received health and safety training and were encouraged to use good work practices. All employees received preemployment physicals, and those working in the metals area underwent annual physicals and quarterly blood and urine monitoring. Periodic environmental sampling was performed. The author does not recommend an in depth study of control technologies at this company since no unique state of the art methods are used.
