||On the correlation between external and internal lead concentrations

||Lead concentrations in the air of 134 workplaces in a battery manufacturing plant were correlated with lead concentrations in workers' blood. The measurements were taken once per year throughout the period from 1982 to 1991. The close correlation between the two concentrations reported by similar studies published in the literature could not be confirmed. High lead concentrations in the workplace increased the blood lead level less than low lead concentrations. Lead concentrations in the air of workplaces below the maximum allowable exposure limit of 0.1mg/m3 increased the blood lead concentrations to a considerably higher degree than did lead concentrations above the maximum allowable exposure limit.
