Abstract
In response to a request, an evaluation was undertaken of possible hazardous working conditions at the IBM Mid America Employees Federal Credit Union (FCU), Kansas City, Missouri. The FCU was located on the ground floor of a multistory office complex. Employees complained of the smell of exhaust fumes and occasional symptoms including dizziness and nausea. Located behind the rear wall of the credit union was an underground loading dock area which services the building. Connected to the loading dock was limited parking areas which can house about 50 automobiles. At the time of the study no reports of nausea or bad odors were made by the employees, and exhaust emissions were at very low or nondetectable levels. The author recommends several measures to reduce potential exposures, including shutting off engines during loading and unloading, weather stripping or sealing hallway doors connecting the dock area to the building more tightly, and further testing of the air quality in the building.
