Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, HHE 75-198-291, 1976 May; :1-5
A health hazard evaluation at the Phillip J. Haram Dental Clinic (SIC-8021) in Laramie, Wyoming, indicates that concentrations of mercury (7439976) during the evaluation ranges from less than 0.2 micrograms to 0.03 milligrams per cubic meter of air. Since none of the air samples taken for analysis exceeds the NIOSH recommended standard of 0.05 milligrams per cubic meter, a health hazard is not judged to exist at the clinic at the time of the evaluation. Some safety recommendations are made.
