Worker exposures to particulate polycyclic organic matter (ppom) were surveyed at the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA) (SIC-3361), in Wenatchee, Washington on July 26, 1978. The company was under consideration for inclusion in a retrospective NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational PPOM exposure. The company maintained one part time physician and four emergency medical technicians. The author concludes that this facility is suitable for inclusion in the PPOM hazard survey because it is representative of prebake facilities and is the oldest operating facility examined. He recommends that this facility be used for further study.
