TUE JUL 16 2013 ~10:35 AM
CHICAGO FIRE DEPARTMENT
LEVEL I HAZMAT/GAS ODOR
8084 CHAMPLAIN CHICAGO, IL

ENG ON ARRIVAL REPORTS HIGH CO READING OF 1000 PPM, BLDG EVACUATED. GAS-POWERED POWER WASHER WAS BEING USED INSIDE THE BASEMENT.

OSHA standards prohibit worker exposure to more than 50 PPM (parts of the gas per million parts of air) averaged during an 8-hour time period.


Following information compiled by CDC/NIOSH ...

Immediately Dangerous To Life or Health Concentrations (IDLH)
The chosen IDLH is based on the statement by Patty [1963] that a 1-hour exposure to 1,000 to 1,200 ppm would cause unpleasant, but no dangerous symptoms [Henderson et al. 1921]. Patty [1963] also reported that 1,500 to 2,000 ppm might be a dangerous concentration for an exposure of 1 hour [Henderson et al. 1921].

Existing short-term exposure guidelines: National Research Council [NRC 1987] Emergency Exposure Guidance Levels (EEGLs):
10-minute EEGL: 1,500 ppm

30-minute EEGL: 800 ppm

60-minute EEGL: 400 ppm

24-hour EEGL: 50 ppm
