A walk through survey of the Northeast Utilities Service Company's Millstone Nuclear power facility (SIC-4911) in Waterford, Connecticut was conducted on August 29, 1979 to determine if this site would be suitable for inclusion in an indepth epidemiological, industrial hygiene, and medical study of health hazards in the painting industry. The facility presently employs 23 painters. This total probably will increase to 150 during the final years of a construction program. Epoxy paints are the primary type of paint used and these are applied with brushes, rollers, and spraying. Because of the highly detailed records kept at this site, and the type of paint used, the authors conclude that this facility would be an excellent location to examine the exact exposures to individuals and to associate these exposures with health effects.
