Benzene pollution from gasoline usage.
Local gasolines contain benzene ranging from 1.8 to 3.7% and their use can lead to significant exposure to benzene.
Gasoline station attendants were found to be exposed to short-term exposure levels (STEL) of 0.064-179 ppm.
Their 8-h time-weighted averaged (TWA) exposure ranged from 0.028 to 0.71 ppm.
For motorcar service mechanics, TWA exposure levels ranged from 0.014 to 1.7 ppm.
The exposure of drivers of gasoline delivery tankers ranged from 0.08 to 2.37 ppm for personal TWA exposure over the whole workshift.
Gasoline usage also contributed to the contamination of surface water with benzene.
