||These studies involved 105 workers in eight job groups, with an average age of 45 years and 5-10 years of special occupational experience at the "Electrosteel" works. Measurement of various factors in the work environment showed unfavorable microclimatic conditions, elevated equivalent levels of noise, excessive general and local vibration, and exposure to manganese aerosols, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides; some of the subjects had hepatic status and connective tissue abnormalities. Job groups found to be at risk were those of steel founders, crane workers and pourers. Summary in English.
