Industrial hygiene walk through survey report of Solar Power Corporation, North Billerica, Massachusetts.
Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, IWS 68-30, 1979 May; :1-19
Worker exposures to potentially hazardous physical and chemical agents were determined at the Solar Power Corporation (SIC-3674) in North Billerica, Massachusetts, on May 2, 1979. The survey was part of a NIOSH health study of newly developing energy technologies. The company retained a part time physician and had access to a corporate industrial hygienist. General housekeeping was marginal in some areas. Processes observed required numerous wet chemical operations. The author concludes that due to the diversity of materials handled and the current labor intensive nature of most of the processes, routine industrial hygiene surveys should be conducted and the industrial hygiene of all process changes should be reviewed.
