Abstract This industrial hygiene summary report summarizes information about workers who manufactured large and small capacitors using polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) at a plant operating from 1938 through 1977. All unique operations ever recorded at this plant were categorized into 29 categories based in inhalation and dermal exposure. The values for inhalation exposure were derived from the air concentrations measured at the plant in 1977. There was a potential for significant dermal exposure for some jobs. Dermal exposures were ordinarily rated separately for each job and each category. Dermal exposures were in the same general magnitude as inhalation exposures. Both inhalation and dermal exposure estimates were used to develop a combination JEM.
