New Approaches to Industrial Hygiene in Beryllium Fabrication 670802
The toxic properties of beryllium have been known for many years. New developments in the fields of industrial hygiene and manufacturing have greatly reduced the hazard in fabrication of beryllium components. These new methods of control have also reduced the cost of process control. This paper describes the techniques used by North American Rockwell to control the toxic effects of fabricating beryllium. Also discussed are the medical controls.
