Worker exposure to ammonia (7664417) was investigated at the Central Staff Communications Laboratory of Mountain Bell (SIC-7330) in Denver, Colorado, during August, 1980, in response to a request from an employee representative. A total of 30 workers were employed by the company. Personal and area air samples were collected and analyzed. All of the samples were well below the recommended evaluation criteria of 50 parts per million. The authors recommend that conformance with recognized ammonia health and safety practices be continued and reviewed on an annual basis. A copy of the manual for ammonia handling is included.
