Two projects that we have recently completed (or in the process of completion), one at a Nashville Hospital Helipad and the other at an USPS facility at JFK airport. Both facilities have the same problem—too much engine exhaust. Occupants are complaining about feeling nausea and other related breathing problems. We recommend that the consultant collect samples for volatile organics using either TO-15 or our new Multiple NIOSH method. By using the Multiple NIOSH method we can also identify and quantitate any fuel vapors that may be in the air using NIOSH 1550. We recommended that the client perform formaldehyde analysis at the JFK site. Formaldehyde is a known combustion product of diesel and jet fuel. We also strongly recommended a CO (carbon monoxide) monitor be placed in the affected area due to the imminent hazard of CO in an exhaust area. We can also test for CO in the lab with a GC or using the Draeger CMS system. On a side note, if you don't have a CO monitor at home—you should get one ASAP. If you can afford several, purchase one for each floor. They cost about $50 at Lowe's or Home Depot.
