||Art restoration workers: Evaluation of toxicological hazards
||Restaurateurs de tableaux: évaluation des risques toxicologiques [in French]|
||4th Quarter 2003, No.96, p.419-440. Illus. 58 ref.
||The French National Occupational Safety and Health Institute (INRS) has been consulted on several occasions on hazards faced by art restoration workers, in particular risks to the reproductive system. Given the paucity of available data, this work was undertaken to study the job of art restoration workers at an important French restoration facility, and to evaluate toxicological and other occupational hazards. The work involved in particular the identification of the main products used and to quantify exposures to solvents using personal sampling. Further data ware obtained by means of questionnaires from a sample of 49 art restoration workers. It was concluded that occupational hazards incurred by these workers are moderate in comparison to exposures encountered in industrial settings.
