This paper describes the relationships between ultra-violet emission, ozone generation and CrVI production in MIG welding which were measured as a function of shield gas flow rate, welding voltage, electrode stick-out and shield gas composition using an automatic welding rig that permitted MIG welding under reproducible conditions. The experimental results(More)
In 1988, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommended that bitumen fumes should also be considered a potential occupational carcinogen and management practices such as engineering controls should be implemented. Changing the production process of bitumen, as a source control method, was investigated in our study. For the(More)
UNLABELLED The present study aimed to assess the effect of supplementation of omega-3 and/or vitamin C on serum interleukin-6 and high sensitivity C-reactive protein concentration and depression scores among shift workers in Shahid Tondgoyan oil refinery. The study design was randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel trial. Totally 136 shift(More)
Previous work has demonstrated that the shield gas composition in gas metal arc welding can have a considerable effect on hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] concentration in the fume and on ozone concentrations near the arc. Normally a single shield gas is used. This paper describes a double shroud torch that allows used of concentric shield gases of different(More)
BACKGROUND There is tremendous concern regarding the possible adverse effects of cell phone microwaves. Contradictory results, however, have been reported for the effects of these waves on the body. In the present study, the effect of cell phone microwaves on sperm parameters and total antioxidant capacity was investigated with regard to the duration of(More)
BACKGROUND There can be little doubt that the construction is the most hazardous industry in the worldwide. This study was designed to modeling the factors affecting unsafe behavior from the perspective of safety supervisors. METHODS The qualitative research was conducted to extract a conceptual model. A structural model was then developed based on a(More)
Synthesized magnesium/copper (Mg/Cu) bimetallic particles have shown good potential for use in the reduction of nitrate from aqueous solutions. This study was conducted to investigate the main factors affecting the kinetics of nitrate reduction by Mg/Cu particles (<100 microm) in uncontrolled reaction conditions. The Mg/Cu bimetallic particles removed the(More)
Increasing applications of microwave radiation are of great concern with regard to public health. Several studies have been conducted detect effects of microwave exposure genetic material leading to negative or questionable results. The Micronucleus (MN) assay which is proved to be a useful method for detection of radiation exposure-induced cytogenetic(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the interaction between welding fumes and noise in causation of hearing impairment. METHODS Groups of rabbits (n=6) were exposed to noise, welding fumes or combination of both prior to Distortion Product Otoacoustic-Emissions (DPOAEs) analysis. The function of outer hair cells (OHCs) was examined by DPOAE assessment over a broad(More)
BACKGROUND In hot weather, overweight and obesity are considered as significant risk factors for the incidence of cardiac strain in workers. This study was aimed to compare cardiac strain among overweight and normal-weight workers in hot, humid conditions in the south of Iran. METHODS This cross-sectional study was conducted on 71 workers in the south of(More)
