||Silk-screen printing processes involve solvents which are present in printing inks, cleaning products and additives. In order to limit the exposure of workers to these harmful substances, appropriate technical measures need to be taken to improve ventilation. A study was conducted on this subject in eight printing shops, where the diffusion of solvent vapours and ventilation parameters were determined for the purpose of developing guidelines. On the basis of the results obtained as well as on the measures already implemented for preventing solvent emissions, a number of recommendations are made for applying these ventilation measures in practice.
