Resumen Medical thesis. Hazard evaluation: observation of the work-station and of fume formation; sampling of the workplace air, particularly for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons that are thermal degradation products of anti-corrosion oils. The toxicity of the fumes, and the resulting respiratory health problems and carcinogenicity, are extrapolated from a survey of the literature. Short-term health effects are studied in a group of welders in an automobile manufacturing plant. These effects include obstructive and restrictive respiratory disorders in non-smokers. Preventive measures include the degreasing of parts, the use of oils that have been properly refined and exhaust ventilation. Personal hygiene and medical prevention are discussed.
