Abstract
Worker exposure to diesel exhaust emissions was investigated at the Potash Facility (SIC-2819), Duval Corporation in Carlsbad, New Mexico on February 5, 1980. The facility was included in a retrospective study of environmental epidemiology study of potash workers. No information on the total work force or medical and safety programs was given. Records are maintained for active and retired employees. The authors note that results of an earlier exposure survey show that 94 percent of work shift samples for nitrogen-dioxide (10102440) were below 0.59 parts per million (ppm); 73 grab type samples for carbon-monoxide (630080) ranged from 2 to 26ppm and averaged 4.6ppm. The authors conclude the workers in this mine are marginally exposed in terms of consideration for a proposed epidemiology study.
