CO IN VEHICLE INSPECTION STATIONS. FEASIBILITY OF ACHIEVING THE NIOSH RECOMMENDED CARBON MONOXIDE STANDARDS IN NEW JERSEY MOTOR VEHICLE INSPECTION STATIONS

Environmental air sampling to determine exposure levels of carbon monoxide was conducted at thirty-one New Jersey Motor Vehicle Inspection Stations. This sampling was intended to supplement a mortality and morbidity study of the motor vehicle inspectors occupationally exposed to carbon monoxide. Survey methods are explained along with factors which may hinder a correlation between the sampling data and the health status of the inspectors. Based upon the survey, recommendations are made concerning the types of controls necessary for the inspection stations to meet the recommended NIOSH carbon monoxide standards.
