National Occupational Health Survey of Mining. Lithium Report.


PB91152892

Publication Date 1990
Page Count 72
Abstract The report provides data concerning the potential occupational exposures of individuals involved in the mining of lithium. Four sample sites were selected from the active lithium mining facilities. All four were surveyed between July 18 and July 27, 1988. Potential exposures and the associated numbers of workers, the occupations of those workers, and the locations on the mining property where the potential exposures were observed were identified. The products and conditions to which workers were potentially exposed included: three Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) regulated chemicals; one chemical with a NIOSH recommended exposure limit which is not regulated by MSHA; three chemicals with no NIOSH or MSHA limits; 152 trade name products; two physical agent conditions; seven musculoskeletal overload conditions; and four welding processes.
