Abstract
On July 14-16, 1997, investigators from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) conducted a site visit at the McGregor Loudspeaker Manufacturing Company (MLM) in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. The site visit was conducted in response to a management request for a health hazard evaluation (HHE) that asked NIOSH to determine if exposures to contaminants in the manufacturing area may be related to health problems; specifically sinus infections, sinus congestion and headaches, reported by some employees.
