Abstract
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Dioxin Registry is a compilation of demographic and work history information for all U.S. production workers who have synthesized products known to be contaminated with 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (2,3,7,8-TCDD) and/or hexachlorodibenzo-p-dioxins (HxCDD). There are fourteen production facilities and approximately 7000 workers included in the Registry. Included in the Registry is the Monsanto Company facility in Sauget, Illinois which produced esters of 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T), tetrachlorophenol (TetCP) and pentachlorophenol (PCP). 2,4,5- T esters were produced at the Sauget facility from 1960 to 1970, while TetCP and PCP were produced from 1938 to 1978. Presented in this report is a historical compilation of information and data on the operations and the personnel involved in these production processes. This information was obtained from documents received from Monsanto, plus interviews with Monsanto employees or former employees. Included in this report are descriptions of the facility, workforce, processes, past exposure, and personnel record systems.
