Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Contract 210-77-0008, 1978 Dec; :1-180
The 1977 public hearings on the development of control technology for exposure to sulfur-dioxide (7446095) in the primary nonferrous metals industry are reviewed. Engineering and administrative controls, personnel protective equipment, work practices, and preventive maintenance practices are discussed along with cost effectiveness considerations. Engineering control effectiveness and feasibility projections as applied to areas where sulfur-dioxide exposure exists are described. A large variety of ventilation and enclosure techniques for controlling and minimizing exposure are presented. Selected exhibits are discussed and past sulfur-dioxide hearing exhibits are reprinted. Considerations for economic feasibility also are discussed.
