Abstract
An on site visit was made to Belden Brick Company (SIC-3251), Sugarcreek, Ohio, to evaluate control methods used at this facility to protect workers from hazardous conditions on the job. The company used a variety of clays and shales from on site mines plus color additives in the manufacture of ceramic brick. The raw materials were crushed, blended, formed, dried, fired, drawn, packaged, and shipped or placed in storage. The potential existed for exposures to silica (14808607), extremes of temperature, noise, and color additives. About 250 million standard bricks were made each year. The engineering controls appeared to be effective and efficient, consisting of exhaust ventilation, operation enclosures, scrap handling, noise attenuation, and vibration dampening. Some use of monitoring systems was noted. According to the author, these systems would be worth an in depth evaluation. It would also be useful to evaluate their use of personal protective equipment. The in depth study should be scheduled when the controls are in a full production mode.
