Abstract
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) conducted a site visit in response to a Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) request received from the United State Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). Personal air samples were collected for carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons, and lead particulate matter. Personal and area air samples for lead, carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons were all within acceptable occupational health criteria for full shift exposures, however, peak exposures exceeded the NIOSH recommended ceiling concentration of 200 parts per million. Based on these results, the NIOSH HHE team made several recommendations that included modifying the local exhaust ventilation systems, incorporating administrative controls, and elimination of some tasks.
