Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, HETA 98-0124-2743, 1999 Jul; :1-29
On February 25, 1998, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request for a Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) from management at the Yankton Sioux Tribe-Marty Indian School in Marty, South Dakota. The request concerned worker exposures to various contaminates (i.e., metals) contained in fly ash from burning used motor oil in the school's boilers. Additional concerns regarded the possibility of lead contamination in the plumbing and machine shop areas adjacent to the boiler room. An initial evaluation at the Mary Indian School was conducted on March 6, 1998, to become familiar with the boiler cleaning process and to investigate the possibility of lead contamination in the boiler room, plumbing shop, and machine shop areas.
