Abstract
A health hazard evaluation was conducted by NIOSH on June 9, 1976, at the Roy K. Yaeger Dental Office (SIC-8021) in Lititz, Pennsylvania. At the time of this evaluation, breathing zone and general room samples were taken for inorganic mercury (7439976). A direct reading instrument also was used. Concentrations of mercury during this evaluation ranged from less than 0.01 microgram to 0.08 milligram per cubic meter. Some levels detected were in excess of the NIOSH recommended standard of 0.05 milligram per cubic meter and thus a potential health hazard to the employees from exposure to inorganic mercury is judged to exist.
