||Prevention of siderosis. A survey of controls in enterprises, 1971-1982
||Prévention de la sidérose. Bilan des contrôles en entreprises de 1971 à 1982 [in French]|

||More than 2000 samples were taken between 1971 and 1982 in 514 French enterprises where there was a risk of siderosis. The results of the analyses are presented by year and activity, and are related to the TLV (5mg/m3 for respirable dust and for ferric oxide). The TLV was exceeded in 29% of the cases, and in 42% of the samples connected with welding. Conclusions: prevention of siderosis must be pursued with determination; iron might constitute - in most metalworking activities - an initial "tracer" of pollution, permitting a quick evaluation of pollution in the workplace.
