Título Measurement of arsenic and mercury concentrations by hydride and cold vapor atomic absorption spectrophotometry
Información bibliográfica Aug. 1993, Vol.54, No.8, p.454-457. Illus. 11 ref.
Resumen Workplace activities in a motorcycle part manufacturing plant were observed. The processes involved were bending and pressing of metal sheets, electric welding, electroplating, machining, and motorcycle muffler assembly. Arsenic and mercury concentrations in urine specimens of student controls and workers were determined. Both methods were sufficiently precise and accurate. Total arsenic levels in the exposed workers were significantly higher than those in non-exposed controls; there is a risk of arsenic poisoning to the workers engaged in motorcycle muffler assembly. The total mercury levels in the exposed workers were no different than in the controls.
