Abstract
Evaluation of hazard from exposure to lead (7439921) and ink dusts generated in the mechanical destruction of United States currency and food coupons in a bank indicates that under conditions found at the time of survey concentrations of lead and nuisance dust are not toxic, the standards being 0.2 and 15 milligrams per cubic meter, respectively. Symptoms of lead intoxication are given as fatigue, exhaustion, irritability, loss of weight and appetite, and abdominal discomfort, in ordinary cases, and diseases of the liver and kidney in advanced cases. Other nuisances studied include noise. Recommendations are made to reduce noise levels and maintain a clean working environment.
