Abstract
Carbon-monoxide (630080), hydrogen-chloride (7647010), hydrogen- fluoride (7664393), hydrogen-sulfide (7783064), nitrogen-dioxide (10102440), nitric-acid (7697372), and phenol (108952) exposures in the industrial arts area at Robert Frost Junior High School (SIC- 8211) in Rockville, Maryland were surveyed on May 22 and 23, 1980. The evaluation was requested by the Montgomery County Public School Administration in response to an employee complaint of respiratory symptoms, dizziness, and fatigue. Only carbon-monoxide was found above detectable limits, but concentrations were well below the OSHA recommended standard of 55 milligram per cubic meter. The author concludes that a health hazard resulting from chemical exposures did not exist at this facility at the time of the survey. He recommends the use of a comprehensive materials inventory, use of protective clothing when appropriate, provision of adequate ventilation systems, and use of proper housekeeping procedures.
