Resumen Occupational hazards with which smoking has a synergistic effect are reviewed. Studies have indicated an increased risk of lung cancer among smokers occupationally exposed to certain toxic substances, in particular asbestos, compared to non-smokers. Similar results were found in surveys of tin miners exposed to radioactive materials. Cigarette smokers have a greater than expected incidence of occupational asthma symptoms, while an excess of cancer of the kidneys and bladder has been observed in smokers exposed to occupational causes of these diseases. Implications for health and safety staff are outlined, in particular the need for effective smoking policies.
