Abstract This guidance note highlights the different types of risk encountered in denture manufacturing workshops. Denture manufacturing techniques are described in detail, together with: the pollutants and associated pathologies; regulations and recommended limit values in France; risks associated with the different substances used (metals, resins or ceramics); workplace hazards. Risk prevention measures concern: elimination of pollutant emissions (workplace layout, choice of materials, products and techniques); exhaust and ventilation: local exhaust ventilation and inventory of the technical solutions for ventilation equipment for each workplace (preparation of plasters and coatings, preparation of ceramics, ovens, fusion and casting of alloys, removal from mould, sanding, wax modelling, finishing); exhaust ventilation network, fresh air input, exhaust and recycling of air extracted, general ventilation, inspection, maintenance and cleaning; personal protective equipment.
