Abstract
In April 1998, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request from management at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Northeast Region, for an evaluation of formaldehyde exposure at Nashua National Fish Hatchery (NFH) in Nashua, New Hampshire. Although no health problems or concerns had been reported, the USFWS was interested in assessing the potential for employee exposure to formalin, which is used to treat infections in sea-run Atlantic Salmon. During a site visit on June 17, 1998, air sampling for formaldehyde was conducted during treatment of sea-run salmon. In addition, work practices and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) were reviewed.
