||Determinations carried out in the atmosphere of 2 electronic components manufacturing workshops showed that the mean concentration of ethylene glycol at critical points was 49mg/m3. No cases of occupational ethylene glycol poisoning were found, but the subjective symptoms noted (headaches, general asthenia, fatigue, etc.) and the functional disorders of the nervous system observed in almost half of the exposed workers point to the neurotoxic effect of this substance. A TLV of 5mg/m3 is recommended.
