Título Prevention of decompression accidents caused by work in compressed air
Título original Prévention des accidents de décompression dus au travail en air comprimé. Expérience du chantier du métro de Lille [en francés]
Información bibliográfica 1990, Vol.51, No.1, p.1-5. 16 ref.
Resumen During work on the Lille (France) underground railway, a particular tunnelling technique was used: mud-pressure tunnelling. This technique requires workers to stay in a hyperbaric chamber. Physicians of the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Centre, having been consulted by doctors of the construction site, developed a programme for the prevention of accidents related to work in a pressurised atmosphere. The programme, which requires close collaboration by occupational physicians, factory inspectors, foremen, emergency services, the fire brigade and the contractor, was highly successful. There were no decompression accidents at all. The development of such programmes is strongly recommended.
