Abstract Questionnaire survey (for a previous article on the subject, see CIS 92-1370) aimed at giving a descriptive overview of a population exposed to waste water, in particular with reference to the biological risk (infections, immunoallergical disorders, vaccination) and if possible, to carry out a follow-up by at least two consecutive medical visits of workers in this sector (577 subjects). Tables show the type of reported sick leave, vaccination depending on seniority, levels of exposure and vaccinations. Annex: list of jobs and classification according to suspected exposure levels.
