||The purpose of this research was to investigate whether the Shewhart control chart method is effective in the detection of occupational asthma. It involved 45 workers who were subjected to lung function testing while at work and away from work. Control charts were developed using Shewhart's method. Findings are discussed. The control chart method was found to be effective, simple and inexpensive for early intervention in workers suspected of occupational asthma.
