Abstract
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), working under an interagency agreement with the Office of Regulatory Analysis of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), is conducting a study to survey occupational exposures to beryllium and to document engineering controls and work practices affecting those exposures. The performance of a thorough industrial hygiene survey for a variety of individual employers provides valuable and useful information to the public and employers in the industries included in the work. The principal objectives of this study are: 1. To identify and describe the control technology and work practices in use in operations associated with occupational exposures to beryllium, as well to determine additional controls, work practices, substitute materials, or technology that can further reduce occupational beryllium exposures. 2. To measure full-shift, personal breathing zone, particulate exposures to beryllium. These samples provide examples of exposures to beryllium among workers across the many industries where beryllium is encountered. These exposure data, along with the control data described above, provide a picture of the conditions in the selected industries. This site visit was conducted on August 21 and 22, 2003 by NIOSH researchers from the Engineering and Physical Hazards Branch, Division of Applied Research and Technology, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
