Título Environmental and health surveys on car repair workers exposed to organic solvents
Información bibliográfica 1982, Vol.24, p.305-313. Illus. 12 ref.
Resumen 25 painters and 22 non-exposed controls were studied in 7 car repair workshops. 23 solvents were analysed by gas chromatography. Toluene was the commonest constituent, followed by xylene and ethyl benzene. Short-term concentrations in the workers' breathing zone during painting were above the TLV in 10 of 14 workers. TWAs measured by personal monitoring were below the TLV in 12 of 13 of them (average approx. 38% of the Japanese TLV). Painters had more complaints of drunkenness, light-headedness and sore throat, diarrhoea, epigastric discomfort, dullness of extremities and dizziness than the control group.
