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 113-19, 1981 Jun; :1-15
A walk through industrial hygiene survey was conducted at RCA (SIC- 3674) in Somerville, New Jersey on March 5, 1981 to examine worker exposure to potentially hazardous agents used in bipolar and complementary metal oxide semiconductor technology. No serious deficiencies were noted in the safety and health program for the 560 employees at the facility. The occupational environment appeared to be well controlled and free from hazardous chemical and physical agents. Safety training programs and personal protective equipment were provided by the company. Laminar flow rooms, laminar flow work stations and clean rooms were used throughout the processing areas. The author recommends that human engineering be used to relieve ergonomic stress involved in manual or eye work and that a medical surveillance program be developed for the facility.
