||Determination of thiocyanates in the urine of workers exposed to cyanides

||A short literature review of the metabolism of cyanides is followed by the results of a study conducted in an electroplating and a cyanide hardening shop. Cyanide concentrations in the workplace atmosphere are compared with the thiocyanate levels found in the workers' urine. A substantial difference in the arithmetic means of the urinary thiocyanate levels in the exposed workers and in a control group shows that the determination of urinary thiocyanate excretion is a valuable cyanide exposure test. Electroplating workers seemed to be more exposed to cyanides than hardening-shop workers.
