NIOSH 1979 May:8 pages
Worker exposure to potentially hazardous physical and chemical agents were determined at the RCA/David Sarnoff Research Center (SIC- 3674) in Princeton, New Jersey, on March 28, 1979. The survey was part of a NIOSH health study of newly developing energy technologies. The company had a formal safety and industrial hygiene program. Although a variety of materials were used in the design and construction of photovoltaic cells, most were in extremely small quantities and were controlled very closely. Local ventilation was provided for the vacuum deposition chambers, and for all containers of toxic gases. The authors conclude that for the observed operations, safety precautions appear adequate.
