Abstract:

This special study was performed to determine the presence and extent of any adverse environmental conditions which may result in a health hazard in Bldg M-9. It included an evaluation of the ventilation systems and measurements of temperature, humidity, dustiness, lighting and indoor atmospheric contamination. The ventilation systems were not balanced and a cross-contamination, of internal combustion engine exhaust products, between the adjacent maintenance shop Bldg 30 and section 3-F is probable. Additionally, the dust concentration in section 3-F exceeded the extrapolated dustiness limit. Temperature and humidity remained relatively constant. Recommendations are made to rebalance the ventilation systems and prevent engine exhaust products and roof dust from entering section 3-F. Author
