Proceedings of NIOSH Styrene-Butadiene Briefing, April 30, 1976, Covington, Kentucky. Cincinnati, OH: NIOSH, 1976 Apr; :49-50
Essentially what we want to do in the remaining time we have this afternoon is to outline for you some of the mechanisms and what we plan on doing as far as an industry-wide study for the styrene-butadiene rubber industry. As I indicated this morning, we are microfilming the records of the two plants, B. F. Goodrich and Texas-U.S. Chemical, in Port Neches and we have almost completed the microfilming of these records. We want to do an indepth study of these facilities. The reason that we want to do this instead of going to the Social Security Administration as Dr. Wagoner indicated, is that we can get a very detailed occupational history through the company records that we are microfilming from each facility to see if there is any specific area of the plant where there may be a clustering or an association with the leukemia or, for that matter, any other excess deaths that we may encounter.
