Abstract
Worker exposures to asbestos (1332214) in the use of welding rods and insulation pads were determined at the Consolidation Coal Company (SIC-1111), Egypt Valley Mine, in Cadiz, Ohio, on August 8 and 9, 1978. None of the welding rods in use contained any asbestos. The insulation pads in use were also free of asbestos. The author recommends that nonasbestos materials be used whenever possible, and that a Materials Safety Data Sheet (OSHA 20) be requested on all materials used by the company to ascertain the composition and toxicity of the materials.
