Abstract
An industrial hygiene survey to study the effect of exposure to formaldehyde (50000) in workers employed at Butler County Mushroom Farm (BCMF), Incorporated (SIC-0182) in Pennsylvania on January and April 28, 1980 was presented. Formaldehyde concentrations in work areas ranged from non-detectable to 4.93 parts per million (ppm), exceeding the OSHA standard of 3ppm. The authors conclude that since BCMF has stopped using formaldehyde, an in-depth industrial hygiene study could not be conducted to support a proposed cohort mortality study.
