Environmental survey and medical evaluation data reveal potentially toxic exposures to carbon-monoxide by warehouse loading dock workers. Carbon-monoxide (630080) concentrations exceed the NIOSH standard of 35 parts per million, with levels in excess of 50 parts per million in winter months when doors remain closed. Industrial truck operators show a significant rise in blood carboxyhemoglobin, associated with carbon-monoxide exposure.
