Walk-Thru Industrial Hygiene Survey at Pine Hall Brick and Pipe Co., Madison, North Carolina.
The Pine Hall Brick and Pipe Company (SIC-3255) in Madison, North Carolina, was surveyed on August 12, 1975, prior to an in-depth survey of workers health and safety in the brick industry. The factory consisted of two operative areas; one was built in 1954 and used primarily man power, the other was built in 1970 and was almost fully automated. There was no medical or safety program at the factory. The authors note that the factory offers a comparison of the old and new methods of brick making. They conclude that dust control can be achieved through automation.
