Abstract
This report provides data concerning the potential occupational exposure of individuals involved in the mining of barite. Five sample sites were selected from the active barite mining facilities. All of these five sites were surveyed between June 1988 and May 1989. This report identifies potential exposures and provides the associated numbers of workers, the occupations of those workers, and the locations on the mining property where the potential exposures were observed. Products and conditions to which workers were potentially exposed included six Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) regulated chemicals, one chemical with a NIOSH recommended exposure limit but no MSHA limit, six chemicals that have no NIOSH or MSHA limit, 87 trade name products, four physical agent conditions, 12 musculoskeletal overload conditions, and three welding processes. Estimated annual usage information is provided for chemical substances, both generic and trade name.
