The most important groups of substances with neurotoxic effects, such as heavy metals, pesticides and organic solvents, are specified. Thirteen industrial branches are mentioned in which exposure to neurotoxic substances may occur, including the chemical industry, the metal-working, automobile and printing industries and agriculture and horticulture.
