Abstract Incidences of Raynaud's Phenomenon were investigated at the Neenah Foundry Company (SIC-3321) in Neenah, Wisconsin, on August 4 to 6, September 3, and from September 23 to 26, 1980. A representative of the molders and Allied Workers Union, Local 121, requested that on behalf of approximately 74 affected chippers and grinders in departments 2 and 3. Vibration measurements revealed that department 3 workers had more daily hand vibration exposure than did the department 2 workers. They recommend as an interum measure that tool maintenance be improved, work practices be modified, and severely affected workers be transferred to jobs that entail no vibration exposure.
