Título Behavioural evaluation of workers exposed to mixtures of organic solvents
Información bibliográfica Sep. 1985, Vol.42, No.9, p.579-590. Illus. 34 ref.
Resumen In this cross-sectional study of behavioural performance by printers and spray painters exposed to mixtures of organic solvents, 124 exposed and 116 unexposed workers from 4 plants participated in a battery of behavioural tests, exposure tests and a medical examination. The major solvents concerned were isopropanol and haxane. No significant relationship was found between solvent exposure level and mental impairment as measured in any of the 10 behavioural tests. In comparisons of exposed and non-exposed workers, memory span was significantly shorter in the exposed group, while no significant differences were found in the other tests. No abnormalities of clinical significance were found in any of the workers.
