||Interim report from a study on health hazards in the electric power production and distribution industry in Sweden (the Elmiljö study). 706 newly employed electrical workers (mostly linemen and station workers) aged 18-44 were examined at the time of employment. Base-line data were collected through questionnaires and from clinical tests. Musculoskeletal disorders were the dominant disease and intestinal disturbances the dominant symptoms. In comparison with some other occupational groups this cohort seemed to be a health group of young electrical workers. Reports on different aspects of health in relation to exposure at work will be presented continuously during the observation period.
