Methods to reduce carbon monoxide levels at the workplace.
Prev Med 1979 May; 8(3):369-378
NIOSH standards for carbon-monoxide (630080) (CO) exposure are examined. NIOSH control recommendations concerning workday exposure and maximum concentration exposure limits are summarized. The use of effective control technology to prevent workplace exposures to harmful agents is considered. Principles of control, requiring a detailed knowledge of the hazards involved, the points of origin of the hazards, routes of occupational exposure, and control options are described. Methods to reduce CO exposure are discussed, including the reliance upon ventilation systems.
