Abstract
On August 28, 1996, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) request from the Metal Trades Council of New London County (MTC) on behalf of Electric Boat (EB) employees. The request, and accompanying documentation, indicated that workers had reported health problems they believed were due to the use of Mare Island epoxy paint on interior surfaces of submarines under construction at EB. In addition to the HHE request, the Connecticut State Division of Environmental Epidemiology and Occupational Health contacted NIOSH investigators and provided information concerning 13 employees whose physicians had notified the state surveillance system of a diagnosis of occupational asthma.
