Environmental survey of film production and printing operations, indicating that ammonia (7664417) vapor from microduplicator operation and carbon-monoxide (630080) from vehicle exhausts were not present in toxic quantities, the ammonia being removed by adequate exhaust ventilation to the outside and the carbon-monoxide being prevented from accumulation by elimination of loading docks. Recommendations are made for provision of one full face gas mask with anhydrous refill canisters for emergency use. Physical properties, chemical properties, and toxic effects are given for carbon-monoxide and anhydrous ammonia.
