Environmental survey to determine whether a hazard exists from exhaust gases of trucks in a motor parts distribution center reveals carbon-monoxide (630080) concentrations from gasoline engines are well below the 50 parts per million standard, and no evidence of oxides of nitrogen and aldehydes from diesel engines is found other than occasional eye and bronchial irritation. Recommendations to prevent possible future hazards include avoiding regular use of gasoline or propane powered fork lifts, regular operation of roof exhaust fans, and warming up of trucks outside of the parking dock area.
