Abstract
In April 1998, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a management initiated health hazard evaluation request from the Trane Company seeking assistance in documenting optical radiation levels produced during brazing operations at their manufacuring facility in Ft. Smith, Arkansas. The Trane Company manufacturers industrial air conditioning units, and brazing is performed on various metal components during the manufacturing processes. Ultraviolet (UV), visible, and infrared (IR) radiation levels were measured under different operating conditions on July 7-8, 1998. Both management and workers were concerned about the shade filter number necessary to safety perform brazing processes in the facility.
