Morgantown, WV: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 1990 Sep; :1-48
This report provides data concerning potential occupational exposures of workers involved in the mining of feldspar. Three sample sites were selected from the active feldspar mining facilities. All three were surveyed between July and August, 1987. This report identifies potential exposures and provides the associated numbers of workers, the occupations of those workers, and the locations on the mining property where the potential exposures were observed. Products and conditions to which workers were potentially exposed included the following: seven Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) regulated chemicals; one chemical that has a NIOSH recommended exposure limit but which is not regulated by MSHA; 13 chemicals with no NIOSH or MSHA limits; 98 trade name products; two physical agent conditions; four musculoskeletal overload conditions; and four welding processes. Estimated annual usage information is provided for chemical substances, both generic and trade names.
