Abstract
A team of three researchers from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) visited the United States/Mexico border crossing between Calexico, California and Mexicali, Mexico. The purpose of the visit was to review the facility operations and develop potential options for reducing border agent exposure to vehicle exhaust. Concerns about the current vehicle exhaust control strategies brought about the request for the site survey. The facility at Calexico differs from the San Ysidro in size (10 lanes versus 24 lanes), ventilation scheme, and traffic volume. This report discusses observations and recommendations concerning the control of border agents' exposure to vehicle emissions at the Calexico Port of Entry into the United States.
