Abstract
In August 1997, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request from employees of the City of Columbus, Division of Sewerage and Drainage (DOSD), to conduct a health hazard evaluation (HHE) at the Columbus wastewater treatment plants. The request concerned the potential for occupational transmission of hepatitis A and B viruses among workers exposed to raw sewage. In response to the HHE request, NIOSH investigators conducted an initial site visit to the Jackson Pike Wastewater Treatment Plant (JPWWTP) in October 1997. During that site visit, background information was collected, a walk-through evaluation was conducted, and personal protective equipment (PPE) usage was evaluated.
