Humphreys CM; Oser JL
NIOSH 1967 Mar:7 pages
Investigation of dust and ventilation problems in the new State Building; detailed descriptions of the problems; and recommendations for corrective measures. The specific situations are a dust problem in the diplomatic mail room; a soiling problem in the Printing and Reproduction Division; and the entrance of diesel engine fumes into the building. It was recommended that an enclosure with exhaust ventilation be provided for the sorting of mail bags in the diplomatic mail room; that until the cause of excessive soiling in the printing shop has been determined, there should be more frequent cleaning of the area; and that trial operations of the Diesel engine should be made at night to minimize the complaints of exhaust fumes in the building.
