Many potentially hazardous materials and processes are employed in the manufacture of printed circuits and printed circuit assemblies. This article draws attention to these and lists the salient properties of those most commonly employed. Methods of assisting in the assurance of the safety of personnel handling and processing these materials are suggested. It is stressed that it is important always to know exactly what is being handled and how it is being modified by process operations. Finally, suggestions are made with regard to the availability of information and assistance and the need for communication with, and education of, all personnel concerned.
