Abstract
In May 1997, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a health hazard evaluation (HHE) request from an employee of Active Industries, Clifton Park, New York. The HHE request stated that employees in the Specialized Machine Operations (SMO) area were experiencing sore throats, rashes, eye irritation, and upper respiratory congestion. The request indicated that the source of the health problems was mica, fiberglass, and Kevlar (trademark) dust, released during the manufacture of electrical insulation products. On November 11 - 12 1997, a NIOSH investigator conducted a site visit which included an opening conference, records review, walk-through inspection, informal discussions with employees, and air sampling.
