Title Biological monitoring results for cadmium exposed workers
Bibliographic information Nov. 1996, Vol.57, No.11, p.1019-1023. Illus. 13 ref.
Abstract Measurements of cadmium in blood and urine were obtained for more than 100 workers at a battery production facility over an 18 month period. Changes in biological parameters are reported for a group of 16 workers medically removed from cadmium exposure following elevations in some biological parameters, and for a group of 15 workers in the platemaking area, where airborne cadmium exposures were being reduced through the use of engineering and work practice controls. Results indicate that both medical removal from cadmium exposure and exposure abatement measures generally result in declines in biological monitoring parameters of exposed workers.
