Abstract
The daily work shifts, pressure exposures, and number of days worked are presented for the Seattle, Washington, sewer tunnel workers. The Washington State Standards for Work in Compressed Air were first used in this project. Recompression treatment for simple bends was used 212 times, but there was no instance of dysbarism involving the central nervous system.
