National Occupational Health Survey of Mining, Boron minerals report.
Morgantown, WV: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 1988 Oct; :1-185
This report concerned occupational health data for boron minerals mining (SIC-1474) based on surveys during June and July of 1984. Four boron minerals facilities were surveyed and data collected concerning occupational health program and policy information; the presence of all health related substances found on mine property; and a series of worksite observations which detail potential exposures to chemical and physical agents. This report identified potential exposures and provided the associated numbers of workers, the occupations of those workers, and the locations on the mine property where the potential exposures were observed. This information was categorized into seven tables: four concerning chemical agents; one concerning musculoskeletal overload conditions; one concerning physical exposure conditions; and one concerning welding processes. Estimated annual usage information was provided for chemical substances, both generic and tradenames.
