Título Biological monitoring of workers exposed to inorganic lead in Singapore
Información bibliográfica 1990, Vol.31, p.127-130. 12 ref.
Resumen In Singapore, legislation on periodic medical examinations for lead exposed workers in factories was introduced in 1985. The results of laboratory tests on workers exposed to inorganic lead in 1987 are discussed. Factories found to be at higher risk (blood lead levels equal to or exceeding 40µg/dL) include those manufacturing PVC and lead storage batteries. Results showed that although no worker was found with a blood lead level above 80µg/dL, some workers were still exposed to a health risk. Blood lead levels are compared for Chinese, Malay and Indian workers.
