Title Health hazard from occupational exposure to metallic copper and silver dust.
Bibliographic information Mar. 1979, Vol.40, No.3, p.245-247. 28 ref.
Abstract The toxicity and occupational hazard of these metals is reviewed in a summary report. The data do not suggest that the prime metals produce disease in man. Both satisfy the requirements for definition as nuisance particulates, and should be regulated as such at the recommended level of 10mg/m3.
