||A survey was conducted in the cold working shops of crystal glass manufacturing plants in France. The following measurements were taken: dust sampling (personal or static); inspirable and alveolar fraction sampling; total dust in the workshops; sampling with Marple 298 cascade impactors; mass sampling; biological indicators. The results of these biological and atmospheric measurements merit further study in order to determine whether late signs of lead poisoning are likely to appear in the long term in crystal glass cutters, the lead being released in the body because of the metabolic disturbances that accompany ageing.
