Resumen A proportion of the staff (1,000 workers out of 3,000) of a metalworking plant underwent preventive medical examinations over a period of 2 1/2 years. 25% of the workers examined showed symptoms of disease (raised arterial blood pressure, ECG showing impairment of cardiac impulse re-polarisation, bronchitis, pneumoconiosis, tuberculosis) requiring medical attention. Check-ups were carried out 2 years later, and the results are presented. No further pathological symptoms were apparent in 48% of the subjects examined. This result is attributed to medical treatment and the organisational measures adopted (vocational rehabilitation, transfer to other work).
