Control Technology Summary Report on the Primary Nonferrous Metals Industry, Vol. IV, Appendix C.
NIOSH 1978 Dec:120 pages
The 1977 public hearings on the development of control technologies for inorganic lead (7439921) exposure in primary nonferrous metals industries are reviewed. Engineering and administrative controls, personal protective equipment, work practices, and maintenance and housekeeping practices are discussed along with cost effectiveness considerations. Engineering control effectiveness and feasibility projections with applications in primary and secondary lead smelters are presented. Selected exhibits from previous hearings, inorganic lead exhibits in particular, are discussed. The author concludes that a lack of data on engineering controls exists which might hinder control implementation in lead smelters.
