Original title Meddelelse nr.16/1976 om losning af nye biler [in Danish]
Bibliographic information M 16/1976, Directorate of Labour Inspection (Direktoratet for Arbejdstilsynet), RosenvŠngets AllÚ 16-18, 2100 K°benhavn, Denmark, 24 Aug. 1976. 2p. Gratis.
Abstract These directives (entry into force: 24 Aug. 1976) are intended to limit exposure to exhaust gases when new cars imported by sea are unloaded by being driven directly ashore from the car deck or hold. Starting up the engines when they are cold produces high CO concentrations, which must be monitored. If the concentration rises above 50ppm, unloading must be discontinued until it falls below 20ppm. When the CO concentration reaches 35ppm alternating work periods and work breaks of 10-15min each are tolerated.
