||In automobile factories lead is used in the manufacture of car bodies. In recent years lead exposure has been reduced through process modification and by installation of exhaust facilities. Measurements in the breathing zones of lead exposed workers taken in 1988 yielded a maximum concentration of 14Ág/m3. In view of the facts that exposure is well below the maximum allowable concentrations while a risk of occasional excessive exposure still persists, more widely spaced check-up examinations are recommended.
