||This case-referent study by questionnaire covered childless men (1981-1983) and their wives. Workers in the textile and chemical industries and laundries had insignificant risks of reduced sperm quality. The men in the paper, rubber and plastic, and printing industries as well as painters were similar except that the odds ratio increased after combination with information on organic solvent exposure. Managers and clerks had significant increases in risk of reduced sperm quality. Drivers of heavy machinery, tractors, forklift trucks and locomotives had an insignificant odds ratio increase; the increase for metalworkers and welders was significant.
