Abstract
Environmental air samples were analyzed for carbon-monoxide (630080) at Frontier Airlines (SIC-4511) air Freight Warehouse in Denver, Colorado on April 9, 1981. The evaluation was requested by the management to determine the potential exposure of approximately 10 affected workers. Air concentrations of carbon-monoxide ranged from 3 to 35 parts per million (ppm) compared with the OSHA standard of 50 ppm for an 8 hour time weighted average. The only source of carbon-monoxide at the facility was emissions from propane forklift trucks. The author concludes that a carbon-monoxide health hazard did not exist at this facility during the time of the survey. He recommends that the warehouse doors remain open during peak usage of the forklift trucks, and that workers be informed of the additive effects of cigarette smoking and carbon-monoxide exposure.
