Development of a hazard process index for 200 selected hazards.
NIOSH 1974 Jun; :1-28
A hazard process index for 200 selected hazards was developed to provide the Office of Health Surveillance and Biometrics (OHSB) of NIOSH with a concise reference guide that will be a basis for further industrial process hazard work and help to obtain a clearer picture of certain work environments. The index is in three volumes: l) Hazardous Process Index, 2) Process Reference Index and 3) Appendix. The index concentrates on the distribution of industrial processes corresponding to the production and use of various potentially hazardous substances as well as the controls that are presently being used to minimize worker exposures to these substances. The index is arranged so that each hazard writeup is complete within itself. Each hazard appears in alphanumeric order and is accompanied by its own bibliography and a description of the properties, production, toxicity, manufacturing processes, and use processes. Only a brief outline of the entries is given in the final report; the complete three volume index will appear separately.
