Abstract On August 25-28 and September 22, 1975, the Industrial Hygiene Services Branch of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health conducted an environmental survey of the printing plant of the General Services Administration (GSA) located in the sub-basement of the Federal Office Building (FOB) in Cincinnati, Ohio. Atmospheric samples were taken for carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, benzene and perchloroethylene. All results were negative. (Tables 1-3). Deficiencies in the ventilation system were found; the ventilation system in the print shop is unbalanced. The system delivers a total of 3300 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) while exhausting a total of 700 CFM. (Tables 4-5). A properly balanced ventilation system should have approximately the same amount of supplied air as exhausted air.
