Air pollution is the presence of pollutant materials in the atmosphere which in certain concentrations will disrupt the dynamic balance of the atmosphere and have an effect on humans and the environment. One of the air pollutant gases is carbon monoxide (CO), which is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, non-irritating, flammable and highly toxic gas, and does not dissolve in water. Motorcycle repair shop workers are very vulnerable to exposure to CO gas while at work. The purpose of this study was to identify carbon monoxide in the blood of motorbike repair workers in Mamajang sub-district, Makassar city.
