Abstract
This report prepared by the National Occupational Health Survey of Mining presented statistics concerning safety in kyanite facilities (SIC-1459) Three kyanite facilities were surveyed in February, 1988; another site was inactive at the time of the survey. Information on products and conditions to which workers were potentially exposed was provided in tabular form. For the kyanite commodity there were 16 Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) regulated chemicals, two chemicals that had NIOSH recommended exposure limits but that are not regulated by MSHA, ten chemicals that had neither NIOSH nor MSHA recommended exposure limits, 119 trade name products, five physical agent conditions, ten musculoskeletal overload conditions, and five welding processes. The number of workers potentially exposed to each product or condition was included, and information was provided on the occupations of potentially exposed workers and locations where workers had potential exposure. For each chemical, an estimate of the annual usage was made.
