Abstract
Worker exposure to methyl-chloroform (71556) and formaldehyde (50000) at the Federal Aviation Administration's Airway Facilities Sector (SIC-999) in Fremont, California was investigated. The facility's management requested the investigation when a worker complained of eye irritation due to exposure to teleprinter paper. About 225 workers are employed at the facility. On November 23, 1981, an environmental survey of the room where the teleprinters were located was conducted and personal and area air samples were collected. No methyl-chloroform nor formaldehyde was detected. Workers who were located close to the teleprinter did not report any symptoms of irritation. The authors concludes that there was no health hazard due to exposures to formaldehyde or methyl-chloroform at this site.
