Errr... first off, i have to say, i have NO idea where i'd post something like this. If i go to a health forum, more than likely NO ONE would be able to help me. I'm pretty confident someone here at Maximum PC has a good deal of knowledge in the manufacturing side of things, in the computer world.
So, i'm looking to get a job (just as a student, not a career or anything of the sort) at this PCB manufacturing facility. And was wondering if such a place is even healthy to work at.
I knew a guy who used to work there, but i never bothered asking HIM the question, because it never came to mind.
I went in there to hand in my application. And i detected a chlorine-like smell in the area...?
Now, according to their site, they are in fact ROHS compliant, and substances such as Lead, Cadmium, and Mercury are NOT used in the production of their products. So... yeah.
If someone could please give me some insight into this, i would very much appreciate it. I'm quite paranoid in regards to this, but um... yeah. I'd like to know. Instead of always having this sketchy feeling about the place WHILE working there. I'd really love some piece of mind with this situation.
