Information on energy industry processes and related health hazards is summarized. Data on energy costs, production, and manpower is provided for various types of energy sources. Conversion processes involved in coal gasification, coal liquefaction, tar sands separation, oil shale production, geothermal energy, and solar energy are described along with potential hazardous exposures and health effects. The authors recommend additional preliminary research to identify populations at risk, evaluate work processes, and prioritize study projects.
