Abstract
This report concerned the results of surveys of four asbestos mines (SIC-1499) which were visited during May, June and July of 1984. The data collected were related to occupational health program and policy information in place at these facilities; an inventory of all health related substances found on mine property; and a series of worksite observations detailing potential exposures to chemical and physical agents. The report identified potential exposures and provided the associated numbers of workers, the occupations of those workers, and the locations on the mine property where the potential exposures were observed. This information was categorized into seven tables: four concerning chemical agents; one concerning musculoskeletal overload conditions; one physical exposure conditions; and one welding processes. Estimated annual usage information was provided for chemical substances, both generic and tradenames. Several other types of data were also gathered including laboratory analyses of a portion of the bulk dust taken from several locations at each operation.
