Abstract Analysis of occupational diseases (1649) and cases of excessive exposure (3264) reported in Hungary during 1986.

Among occupational diseases, the most important were hearing damage due to exposure to noise (28.8%), skin diseases (27.5%) and infectious diseases (23.1%). A table presents the most common occupations (by industry) where exposure to harmful substances occurs.
