Abstract
Worker exposures to nitrogen-dioxide (10102440) (NO2), nitric-oxide (10102439) (NO) and hydrocarbons were surveyed at Allied New York Services, Inc., (SIC-4582) on August 13 to 16, 1979. Concentrations of NO2 and NO ranged from 0.26 to 1.7 parts per million (ppm). All samples were below the OSHA standards for NO2 and NO of 5 and 25ppm, respectively. Concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) ranged from undetectable to 1.22 milligrams per cubic meter (mg/CuM), compared to the OSHA standard of 0.15mg/CuM. The PAH exposures were of limited duration and did not constitute a health hazard. The author recommends worker education, good personal hygiene habits, washing of hands before eating, smoking and drinking, and the use of goggles, gloves and hearing protection devices.
