Título Work-related asthma in health care in Ontario
Información bibliográfica 2011, Vol.54, p.278-284. 27 ref.
Resumen This study examined the frequency of claims for occupational asthma (OA) and work-exacerbated asthma (WEA) approved by the compensation board in Ontario, Canada, in the health care sector between 1998 and 2002, to determine the frequency rates, causative agents and occupations. During this period, five claims were approved for sensitizer OA, two for natural rubber latex (NRL), and three for glutaraldehyde/photographic chemicals. The two NRL cases occurred in nurses who had worked for over 10 years. There were 115 approved claims for WEA; health care was the most frequent industry for WEA. The rate of WEA claims was 2.1 times greater than that in the rest of the workforce. Other findings are discussed.
