Resumen The Industrial Safety and Health Law as amended in 1988 divides workplaces into Control Classes I, II and III on the basis of air monitoring at regularly spaced points over the surface of the work area (A sampling) and at points of emission of pollutants (B sampling). Concentrations of airborne organic solvents were measured in eight types of enterprise, including print shops, woodworking shops, small factories for the manufacture of rubber, electrical or electronic goods and others (160 workplaces, 1504 measurements). The solvents were aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, ketones, chlorinated solvents ethyl acetate and dimethylformamide. Only 17% of the measurements put the corresponding workplaces in Control Class III, where immediate action is required. Gravure printing shops and some small manufacturing operations were the most common enterprises in this category.
