Abstract A Major research area for NIOSH is the evaluation of control technologies which may be used to reduce occupational exposures to potentially toxic chemical substances and harmful physical agents. The primary purpose of this study conducted by Radian Corp. was to identify and evaluate examples of good employee exposure control techniques associated with several petroleum refining operations: lube oil and wax processing and packaging; catalytic reforming and aromatics extraction; oil-water separation; alkylation; and hydrogen sulfide handling. In-depth visits were conducted at seven petroleum refineries across the U. S. and successful employee exposure controls were documented and evaluated. The information obtained from the program will be disseminated to the industry and other interested parties. This information transfer is designed to promote the use of successful exposure control ideas.
