Abstract
In response to an employee request for a health hazard evaluation (HHE) received on May 29, 1998, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) conducted a site visit at the R.H. Sheppard Co., Inc., facility in Hanover, Pennsylvania. The request asked NIOSH to determine if reported worker health problems were associated with exposure to contaminants in plant No. 1 and Department No. 109, at this automotive power steering unit manufacturer. The reported health problems included allergic reactions, respiratory infections, and skin and eye irritation. Potential exposures identified in the request included metalworking fluids (MWFs), naptha, and metal dust from grinding. Inadequate ventilation was also noted as a concern.
