Walk-Through Survey of Speedring Systems, Warren, Michigan.
NIOSH 1973 Apr:6 pages
A brief walk-through survey was conducted at Speedring Systems (SIC- 3541), Warren, Michigan, on March 27, 1973, for familiarization with beryllium (7440417) machining practices and associated control techniques. The facility is essentially a machine shop dealing with fabrication of common and exotic metals. Although in-plant beryllium measurements were not taken, the beryllium machining operations and associated controls are probably acceptable from an industrial hygiene standpoint. However, management should consider utilizing the individual multicyclone type collectors which would pick up chips and deposit them in a drum where they could be salvaged without the multiple handling that is necessary with the present system.
