Abstract
In May 1996, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request from the International Union of Electrical Workers (IUE) Local 919 to conduct a health hazard evaluation (HHE) at the Ford Electronics and Refrigeration Corporation plant in Connersville, Indiana. The request expressed concern about recurring respiratory problems, including hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP), which were thought to be associated with exposure to metalworking fluids (MWF) in the Compressor area of the plant. In response to the HHE request, NIOSH representatives made multiple site visits to the Connersville plant over the period June 1996 - April 1998. Interim letters to management and union representaties summarizing ongoing HHE activities were distributed in October 1996 and January 1997.
