HEALTH HAZARD EVALUATION REPORT NO. HETA 82-061-1152, NEOPLAN USA CORPORATION, LAMAR, COLORADO

On March 9, 1982, NIOSH investigators conducted the initial industrial hygiene survey and collected breathing-zone air samples for measurement of zinc oxide, cadmium, and silver. The silver and cadmium levels were below laboratory detection limits. A follow-up industrial hygiene and medical evaluation was conducted on May 11, 1982. Breathing-zone air samples were again collected for zinc oxide, cadmium, and silver. All levels were well within the evaluation criteria. On the basis of the environmental and medical data and personal employee interviews, NIOSH investigators concluded that a health hazard did exist to zinc oxide at Neoplan USA Corporation at the time of this survey.
