Abstract
Exposure to carbon-monoxide (630080) (CO) at the Central Bank of Denver (SIC-6020), Denver, Colorado was investigated. A representative of the bank requested the survey to see if exposures existed in the printing, supply, and mailroom department. On October 5, 1981 breathing zone and general room air samples were taken in the work environment and employees were interviewed to assess health effects. Occasional concentrations of CO ranging from 10 to 15 parts per million (ppm) were found in the parking garage while concentrations of 6 to 8ppm were found in some offices (both well below NIOSH and OSHA standards). Some employees had experienced headaches and eye irritation. The author concludes that there was no health hazard to CO during the survey period. The author recommends that CO surveillance and monitoring be instituted and that makeup ventilation be controlled.
