Environmental and breathing zone air samples were analyzed for ozone (10028156) at Mountain Bell (SIC-4811) in Fort Collins, Colorado on November 14 and 20, and December 10, 1980. The evaluation was requested by the management to determine the potential exposure of two workers. Ozone measurements taken at two copy machines during the first two surveys revealed trace quantities of ozone of less than 0.2 milligrams per cubic meter (mg/cu m). Long term air samples taken during the third survey after ventilation systems were installed revealed ozone concentrations below the laboratory detection limit of 0.001mg/cu m. The author concludes that a health hazard from ozone exposure did not exist at the time of the survey. He recommends the installation of additional ventilation systems on other copying machines in poorly ventilated rooms.
