The PV Industry in many ways minors the semiconductor industry during the 1980ís and 1990ís with respect to rapid growth and evolving new processes. We learned many EH&S lessons regarding that period. Those lessons included fire and explosion risks, worker exposure, changing codes, new processes and chemicals, exhaust treatment, etc. This presentation will review what we have learned and how these lessons can be applied to the growing PV industry.
