Industrial hygiene walk-through survey. Report of Litton Electron Tube Division, San Carlos, California.
Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, IWS 113-13, 1981 May; :1-21
A walk through survey of worker exposure to potentially hazardous agents in the Litton Electron Tube facility in San Carlos, California is reviewed. The facility structure, design, and products are described. The process layout by building and tube type of the klystron and travelling wave tube operations is illustrated and discussed. The work force characteristics, the medical, health and safety programs, the company policies, the record keeping system, and the workman compensation programs are reviewed. The industrial hygiene procedures are described. The authors conclude that any radiation leakage detected by the monitoring program would most likely result from a power transformer or an equipment malfunction, and that very few cases of occupational dermatitis are reported.
