Abstract Cutting fluids used in the machining of metals are known to cause skin pathologies including dermatitis and cancer, as well as respiratory diseases. These risks justify the adoption of preventive measures. The complex nature of these fluids and the large diversity of the resulting pollutant emissions considerably complicate the task of occupational hygienists responsible for evaluating the exposure of workers to these products. This article describes the methods used in France, the United States, Germany and Great Britain for the quantitative analysis of aerosols in cutting oils.
