Abstract Welding and the manufacture of hydrogen peroxide are the most important sources of exposure to ozone in industry. From studies in humans, the first effects of short-term exposure to ozone are respiratory symptoms. The lowering of FEV1 was found at concentrations exceeding 0.6mg/m3. However when exposure to ozone was conducted jointly with physical strain (ergometric exercises), functional respiratory effects were observed at a concentration of 0.16mg/m3. On the basis of current knowledge, it is proposed to increase the maximum allowable concentration (time-weighted average) of ozone in Poland from 0.1 to 0.15mg/m3.
