||Risk of metal exposure in production and processing of copper alloys
||Rischio espositivo a metalli nella produzione e lavorazione di cuproleghe [in Italian]|

||Preliminary investigation of exposure to metals was conducted in three copper alloy industries (one foundry for scrap and two other foundries). Biological and environmental monitoring showed that lead (Pb) exposure levels were distinctly higher than those of all other metals in the three industries. The risk of "microdose" exposures to the other metals, i.e. exposure to doses well below exposure limits, merits further research, however. The metals investigated were: Cu, Zn, Be, Sb, Mn, Ni and Cr.
