Abstract
An occupational health evaluation of the Aircraft Instrument Laboratory, Rooms 117A and B of Building A171, CFB Borden was carried out to determine if a potential toxic hazard existed because of numerous small spills of inorganic mercury over a period of years. Atmospheric inorganic mercury vapour levels were measured, and personal monitoring, by passive dosimetry was carried out; mercury levels were found to be below or at the recommended TLV of 0.05 mg/m super 3. Recommendations are given regarding safe operating procedures to be followed in the use of inorganic mercury.
