Abstract
Review of the toxic hazards of acrolein (107028), carbon-monoxide (630080), formaldehyde (50000), nitrogen-dioxide (10102440) and other oxides of nitrogen, sulfur-dioxide (7446095), and nuisance particulates. Topics include sampling methods and procedures, sample location and background information, medical evaluation through questionnaire, spirometry, and chest x-ray. Exposure to all the substances evaluated in the servicing division of the railroad company surveyed is found to be below OSHA standards. Eye irritation may occur for short periods depending on the condition of the units. Excessive chronic respiratory disease is considered unlikely. Recommendations include shutting off the engines whenever possible during the servicing period.
