The General Motors Assembly Division (SIC-3711) in Linden, New Jersey was surveyed to determine its suitability for inclusion in the NIOSH epidemiological, industrial hygiene, and medical study of health hazards in the painting industry. Facility design and work processes were evaluated, and painting operations in the body paint, final paint, chassis paint, small part and road wheels paint, and paint mix and storage areas were reviewed. Data also was collected on annual paint usage, number of exposed workers, availability of personnel records, medical and industrial hygiene services, and engineering controls. The authors recommend that this facility be included in the NIOSH survey.
