Air samples were analyzed for formaldehyde (50000), carbon-monoxide (630080), oxides of nitrogen (NO2/NO), ozone (10028156), nitrogen- dioxide (10102440) (NO2), and phosgene (75445) at the Historic Atlanta Local Development Company (HALDC) (SIC-8911), Atlanta, Georgia on August 17, 1979. The investigation request was made by the Director of HALDC to investigate three workers' complaints of eye, nose, and throat irritations. Two follow up surveys were conducted on September 27 and October 21, 1979 and a malfunctioning refrigerator was tested for sulfur-dioxide (7446095) leakage. No contaminants were detected in the air samples. No sulfur-dioxide was found leaking from the refrigerator. The workers' symptoms disappeared after the refrigerator was removed from the premises. The author recommends that the refrigerator be replaced with a newer model and that NIOSH should be notified if symptoms recur.
