Resumen Occupational asthma is the occupational respiratory disease most frequently recognized by the occupational safety and health commission (CSST) of Quebec, where some 60 new cases are compensated annually, half of which involve young workers. In some industrial sectors, less than five years elapse between the start of exposure and the appearance of the first symptoms. Close to 400 workers that took part in a previous study on apprentices collaborated in this study, whose objective was to characterize the development of occupational asthma over time. Intermediate symptoms leading to the appearance of probable occupational asthma were followed, namely allergic sensitization specific to laboratory animals, flour and latex, based on the initial training of the participating workers, the respiratory symptoms in the workplace and bronchial hyper-reactivity. Findings are discussed.
