Resumen In 1969-1970, an industrial hygiene survey was made of airborne dust concentration, composition and particle size in a Yugoslav electric porcelain works; the results are tabulated. Clinical examination of 165 workers revealed 5 cases of pneumoconiosis, 5 of active tuberculosis, 1 of pneumoconiosis with tuberculosis and 4 of chronic bronchitis; clinical and radiological pictures are described. There was a close relationship between respiratory lesions and workplace dust composition - especially where the dust contained free silica of respirable size. The following measures are recommended: local exhaust ventilation, polyester fibre working clothes, humidification of raw materials, total enclosure of processes, rigorous pre-employment medical examinations, and BCG vaccination.
