Title: Lead: Occupational health hazards. (Latest citations from the NTIS data base). Published Search

Abstract

The bibliography contains citations concerning the health hazards of working with lead-containing material and processes. Health hazards from lead exposure in industrial settings such as resource recovery plants, iron foundries, lead ore processing plants, mines, scrap metal processing plants and yards, tanning facilities, and printing facilities are evaluated. Clinical studies of worker exposure to lead are presented. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) lead standards are discussed with regard to abatement procedures for lead exposure in the workplace. (Contains 250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)

  • The bibliography contains citations concerning the health hazards of working with lead-containing material and processes. Health hazards from lead exposure in industrial settings such as resource recovery plants, iron foundries, lead ore processing plants, mines, scrap metal processing plants and yards, tanning facilities, and printing facilities are evaluated. Clinical studies of worker exposure to lead are presented. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) lead standards are discussed with regard to abatement procedures for lead exposure in the workplace. (Contains 50-250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.) (Copyright NERAC, Inc. 1995)
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning health hazard evaluation investigations performed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Industrial inspections performed by NIOSH as routine surveys or as a result of a health-related complaint are presented. A majority of the citations evaluate potential exposure to toxic materials or hazardous working conditions. Other occupational health issues are discussed in separate bibliographies. (Contains 250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning the health hazards of formaldehyde inhalation. Health hazard evaluation reports of industrial sites are discussed, and the effects of formaldehyde on animals and humans are considered. Industrial hygiene sampling method and analytical methods to quantitate formaldehyde are also discussed. (Contains a minimum of 73 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning the effects of chronic lead exposure in humans and animals. The citations explore lead exposure resulting from occupational hazards, automobile emissions, and air pollution. Lead absorption in children is discussed. The clinical features of lead toxicity are noted, and biochemical assays for the quantification of blood and tissue lead levels are discussed. D-aminolevulenic acid dehydratase and its relation to blood lead levels are cited. (Contains 250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning occupational exposure to lead and its health consequences. Foundry workers, orchard workers, mechanics, industrial workers, and lumbermen are among the workers studied. The citations explore chronic effects of lead exposure on adults and present assay methods for determining blood lead levels. Mortality studies of workers exposed to lead and other synergistic toxins such as cadmium and nickel are also cited. Lead exposure in infants and children is discussed in a separate bibliography. (Contains a minimum of 199 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
