Abstract
Occupational health hazards in the melting and pouring areas of foundries are reviewed. Specific health hazards are described along with methods of hazard detection and control. Health problems discussed include those caused by metal dusts and fumes, mineral dusts, organic dusts, gases, vapors, noises and vibration, and radiant energy. Dust and fumes hazards in foundries which use aluminum (7429905), brass, bronze, iron (7439896), and magnesium (7439954) are described. Remedial actions also are reviewed including reporting of the problems, use of protective equipment and clothing, good workplace and personal hygiene, regular medical examinations, and engineering controls.
