Abstract
On June 6, 1997, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health(NIOSH) received a request for a health hazard evaluation (HHE) from employee and management representatives of Delphi Chassis Systems in Dayton, Ohio. The request stated that employees in departments 2, 12, 37, and 40 of this automotive brake parts manufacturing facility were experiencing a high frequency of upper respiratory irritation and colds. A prior HHE request (HETA 96-0199) involving the same concerns had been received on June 10, 1996. In response to that first request, an initial walk-through survey was conducted on August 30, 1996, at which time several brake pads were collected for analysis. That HHE was postponed by management and union representatives due to ongoing contract negotiations.
