Abstract
Environmental air samples were analyzed for ozone (10028156) chlorinated hydrocarbons carbon-monoxide (630080), alcohol (64175), and respirable dust in the printing room of the Newton Public Schools Administration Building (SIC-8211) in Newton, Massachusetts on November 20, 1980. The evaluation was requested by the Director of Technical Vocational Education on behalf of three female employees with reported ovarian cysts. No appreciable concentration of any of the sampled substances were found. The authors conclude that a health hazard did not exist at this facility, and that the presence of ovarian cysts was not related to occupational exposure.
