Abstract
Environmental air samples were analyzed for carbon-monoxide (630080) (CO) and engine exhaust airborne lead (7439921) at United Parcel Service (SIC-4212) in Newport, Oregon, on February 10 and 11, 1981. An unidentified individual requested the evaluation on behalf of two affected workers. Airborne lead samples were all less than the detectable limit of 2 micrograms per cubic meter. CO concentrations ranged from 1 to 30 parts per million (ppm), compared with the OSHA standard of 50ppm. The author concludes that a health hazard from CO and lead did not exist at this facility. He recommends several measures for limiting engine running time while inside the building to reduce CO concentrations in the facility.
