||Health disorders in relation to risk factors in 935 Spanish automobile repair workers were studied. Workers were classified according to five occupational groups: administrative workers, painters, electricians, mechanics and sheet-metal workers. Exposure to noise and solvents was evaluated and bronchopulmonary and dermatological tests were conducted for each worker, as well as a general medical examination. The only significant associations between occupation and specific health condition were for hypoacusia, endocrine disorders and renal disorders among sheet-metal workers, and for endocrine disorders among painters.
