Abstract
A hazard evaluation and technical assistance survey to determine levels of airborne pentachlorophenol (87865) (PCP) at the National Park Service (SIC-7999), Fort Stanwix National Monument, Rome, New York office was conducted. Air samples were taken from different locations. Urine samples were collected from employees and health status interviews were conducted. Measurement of airborne PCP levels below the existing Threshold Limit Value (TLV) and Federal Standard were documented in four sampling locations in the park office; the maximum airborne concentration approached 40% of the TLV and Federal Standard. The presence of PCP in the work environment was further substantiated by urine PCP levels of office workers which indicated increased absorption of PCP as compared to control specimens. Two of five workers interviewed reported symptoms which they thought were related to the work environment. Medical and environmental recommendations for further amelioration of potential hazards, were given.
