In response to a request from Nederlander Arena Management, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) investigators conducted a health hazard evaluation (HHE) at the Crown Coliseum during the U.S. Hot Rod Monster Truck and Motocross Show in Cincinnati, Ohio. NIOSH investigators conducted personal and area air monitoring on January 23 and 24, 1998, to evaluate exposures to carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic composites (VOCs), and to measure noise levels. Personal monitoring was conducted on two ushers and two security personnel during each show. The monitoring was conducted over the course of the 4-hour work shifts. Monitoring as also conducted to assess typical crown exposures to CO and noise during the 2 1/4 hour shows. The monster trucks burn methanol and do not have exhaust suppression systems, while the motorcycles burn a mixture of high octane gasoline and racing engine oil and are equipped with exhaust suppression by systems and noise silencers.
