||New problems at workplaces arising from the combination of familiar substances with new production methods
||Neue Probleme bei der Kombination bekannter Arbeitsstoffe mit neuen Arbeitstechniken [in German]|
||1989, No.3, p.2-5. Illus. 14 ref.
||New technologies can pose new problems as is illustrated by the production of semiconductors. Workers are exposed to 60 different gaseous pollutants in clean rooms with about 43 air exchanges per hour. Experimental studies are being conducted to gain information on the harmfulness of that exposure. As an example, preliminary results of the exposure of rabbits to various mixtures of 1,1,2-trichloroethane and 1,4-dioxane are summarised. They reveal a dependence of enzyme activity on the mixing ratio and on the duration of exposure.
