An information profile on the potential occupational hazards of the aluminum (7429905) reduction industry (SIC-3334) is presented. Process descriptions, relevant chemical and physical agents, the number of workers exposed or employed, the biologic effects of the chemical and physical agents, and existing exposure standards are included. Incidence of mortality, injury, and morbidity is presented. No NIOSH health hazard evaluations relevant to this industry were available for this report. The authors conclude that the workers in the aluminum reduction industry are exposed to a greater number of chemical and physical agents than might be initially expected.
