Resumen MD thesis dealing with the hazards associated with thermography, diazo copying and electrostatic copying. After a technical introduction, 3 cases of occupational disease are reported with a review of the few cases found in the literature (allergic skin conditions due especially to diethylaminobenzenediazonium chloride, and respiratory disturbances mainly due to ammonia). The small number of such cases contrasts with the large number of toxic products employed, and a long chapter is devoted to this. The techniques studied thus do not seem to present a great hazard for users. But whatever technique is used protective measures are necessary. These are based on the choice of premises and personnel, personal protection, and supervision of personnel and the workplace atmosphere. In view of the trend towards specialised photocopying units, acutely and chronically toxic substances should be subject to strict controls. The refusal of manufacturers to divulge the chemical composition of their products presents a serious problem.
