Environmental air samples were analyzed for air contaminants at the National Center for Health Statistics (SIC-9431) in Hyattsville, Maryland, on May 21, 1981. An unidentified individual requested the evaluation on behalf of an unspecified number of workers. No substance was detected which exceeded any of the evaluation criteria. Ozone (10028156) and carbon-monoxide (630080) concentrations were below the limit of detection. Unquantifiable amounts of toluene (108883), perchloroethylene (127184), and xylene (1330207) were detected. Temperature and humidity were considered normal. The author concludes that no health hazard exists in this facility from airborne contaminants.
