Resumen Thirteen operators were examined for occupational dermatoses necessitating reassignment. The concentration of airborne ozone 60min after setting the machines in operation was 0.15-0.17mg/m3. Attemps to detect airborne selenium were unsuccessful. Pruritis, papulovesicular rashes and occupational contact eczema were established 4-6 months after beginning work. Confirmed contact allergens in 6 of the operators were toner type B, drum-cleaning fluid and fuser oil. Epicutaneous tests of mercury, cobalt, chromium, mercaptobenzothiazole, colophany and Peru balsam were positive. Measures for reducing exposure of the operators to the allergens were put in practice.
