Título Applicability of relative dust concentration meters to workplace measurements in lead handling factories

Resumen Relative dust concentration meters were used to determine airborne dust at 31 workplaces in 5 lead-handling firms (a storage battery manufacturer, a lead lining factory, a lead alloy manufacturer, a lead powder manufacturer, and a glazing factory). Filter sampling followed by atomic absorption spectrometry was used to determine airborne lead concentration. There was a significant correlation between lead concentration and relative dust concentration in all 5 firms. The total dust concentration was also measured by gravimetry in relation to the lead concentration and good correlations were found. Thus, relative dust concentration meters can be of use in managing the working environment of certain types of lead-handling workplaces.
