Abstract
Breathing zone and personal air samples were analyzed for lead (7439921) (Pb) to determine exposures to New York Telephone Company (SIC-3661) workers engaged in underground operations involving repairs to old telephone cables. An evaluation request came from the Communications Workers of America, Local 1106. The number of affected workers was not specified. All samples were below the OSHA standard of 200 milligrams per cubic meter. The author concludes that there was no health hazard from exposure to Pb among the telephone workers.
