Resumen MD thesis. An introduction consisting of historical background material and a chapter containing technical data on black-and-white and colour photography are followed by a study of workposts and working conditions in small photographic laboratories and in larger, more sophisticated mechanised laboratories. The author considers sources of contamination (before film processing and when using chemicals and other materials) and studies the occupational diseases to which photographic workers are exposed (mainly dermatoses - 10 case studies are given -, poisoning due to the vast number of photographic processing chemicals used (listed in an appendix with their synonyms, chemical formulae, trade names, etc.), damage to the eyes and respiratory tract, postural disorders, physical injuries due to accidents, electric shock, etc.). Other aspects considered include: occupational hygiene, medical prevention, personal protective equipment, statutory compensation covering occupational accidents and diseases, and cases where there is no provision in French law for entitlement to compensation.
