Results of an environmental evaluation at a cold and hot rolled steel manufacturing plant indicate that carbon-monoxide (630080) exposures are not hazardous to employees when administrative controls are used. Earlier, carbon-monoxide had been a hazard to the crane operators and the workers below the crane operators in the annealing furnace area, but administrative controls resulted in reduction of carbon-monoxide concentrations. The future installation of exhaust ventilation above crane operators should eliminate the build-up of the gas.
