NIOSH 1972 Aug:59 pages
A preliminary walk-through survey was conducted at the Aluminum Company of America (SIC-3334) facilities in Tennessee on August 29, 1972. The company employed approximately 6,000 workers. The survey indicated a potential for exposure to coal-tar-pitch (65996932), carbon-dust (7440440), fluorides, carbon-monoxide (630080), noise and heat. These exposures were most severe in the south building of the facility where alumina was reduced to aluminum in both prebaked and soderberg cells and at auxiliary operations where carbon anodes and cathodes were produced. The authors recommend additional investigation, including analysis of approximately 75 air samples.
