Abstract
Report of an environmental sampling conducted by NIOSH during August 1973 to July 1974 at 16 different border crossing facilities ranging geographically from Port Huron, Michigan to San Ysidro, California, to determine if the inspectors experience exposures to environmental contaminants that cause a hazard to their health. Samples taken to measure the levels of carbon monoxide, lead, total particulates, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and noisindicate that at the time of the survey, employee exposures are within the U.S. Department of Labor standard. With heavier traffic and different climatic conditions, carbon monoxide exposure is indicated as likely to becomy excessive. Recommendations are made for lowering carbon monoxide exposures.
