Abstract
Environmental air samples were analyzed for carbon-monoxide (630080), ozone (10028156), and formaldehyde (50000) at the Atlanta Jewish Federation (SIC-8321), in Atlanta, Georgia, on October 23, 1980. In addition, general office ventilation was evaluated, the heating and air conditioning system inspected, and six employees were interviewed. Air samples were free of detectable amounts of carbon-monoxide, ozone, and formaldehyde. Three of the six employees interviewed complained of fatigue and eye irritation. Predominant complaints were related to the odor generated by an electronic stencil machine. A lack of fresh air entering the building, caused by a closed fresh air duct of the central air conditioning system, was also noted. The author concludes that the complaints of poor air quality in this building were probably related to inadequate fresh air intake and failure to replace the odor control adsorber on the electronic stencil machine. They recommend that the filter on the stencil machine be changed whenever odors are detected, and that engineering modifications be implemented to allow at least a 10 percent supply of fresh air to be mixed with recirculated air inside the building.
