Abstract
A Health Hazard Evaluation investigation was conducted by NIOSH at the computer center of the Penn Central Transportation Company (SIC- 4011), located in the Food Fair building in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The survey was prompted by a request from an authorized representative of the approximately 600 affected employees regarding the potential toxic effects of any substances found in the place of employment. Environmental air sampling, medical evaluation and a review of the pertinent literature disclosed that exposure of clerks to asbestos (1332214) and fibrous glass was not toxic at the concentrations measured during the survey. No judgement was made as to the cause of dermatitis reported by some of the workers; however, the condition does not appear to be related to asbestos or fibrous glass exposure.
