Worker exposures to chemical and physical substances during the manufacture of solar photo voltaic panels were investigated at Photon Power, Incorporated (SIC-3674) in El Paso, Texas, on October 31, 1978. The company employed 25 workers and provided preemployment examinations and regular tests to determine blood cadmium concentrations. Ventilation systems were adequate and general hygienic practices were good. The authors conclude potential exposures to cadmium-sulfide (1306236) (CdS) exist during the clean up of ducts, spray chambers and trolleys and during filter replacements. They recommend air sampling for tin, methanol, and CdS.
