Carbon monoxide exposures in parking garages

Conclusions

Twenty five days of hourly air sampling at seven parking garages of the enclosed type indicated a mean carbon monoxide concentration of 58.1 ppm (S.D. ± 23.15, and S.E. ± 4.63). This degree of exposure for eight hours each day poses a potential occupational hazard to those already having some degree of impairment of tissue oxygenation.
