A Hazard Evaluation and Technical Assistance survey was conducted by NIOSH on March 29-31, 1977, at the Republic Lead Burning and Equipment Company, in Cleveland, Ohio, a facility engaged primarily in the manufacture of lead (7439921) anodes (SIC-3559) for electroplating. The survey was prompted by a request from the management regarding lead exposure of the approximately 12 affected employees. The company has been previously cited by OSHA and given abatement dates for the establishment of a respiratory protection program and correction of hazardous exposures to lead. The results of the survey indicate that despite company efforts, hazardous air lead levels and elevated worker blood lead concentrations still exist at the plant. Recommendations to ameliorate the existing hazardous conditions are made.
