Current Perspectives in Industrial Hygiene--Microelectronics Manufacturing
Aton, Elizabeth (Washington University School of Medicine)
The model for industrial hygiene practice, RECOGNITION => EVALUATION => CONTROL can be efficiently interpreted in the framework of the microelectronics manufacturing process. In this presentation process materials and operations are analyzed for their potential health implications, and control measures common to industry practice are reviewed. Specific variables assessed include physical agents and air contaminants. The second section of the presentation focuses on emerging issues in occupational and community health, for microelectronics and related high-technology workplaces.
