Job Task Name

Worked in smelter for years with heavy exposures to sulfur dioxide and metal fumes

Comments

Some of the airflow obstruction found in studies of smelter workers is thought to be due to occupational asthma. [Rosenstock, p. 323] Smelter workers with exposures to SO2 and metal fumes had increased airway obstruction compared to workers without exposure to these agents. [Hyperlink]
