Abstract
An operational hygiene evaluation of two (2) electrically-powered vans was conducted to determine if a toxic hazard existed in the vehicles from battery emissions. The two vans were evaluated under closed-down conditions in both static and running modes and in varying stages of battery discharge. Analysis of the atmospheric air collected within the vans during the trial for sulfuric acid mist, chlorine, hydrogen, hydrogen fluoride, ammonia, ozone, and sulfur dioxide showed negative results in all cases. A toxic hazard was not identified within the vans.
