Workers exposed to metallic mercury vapor were subjects for tremor, EMG, and psychomotor tests. Regression analysis revealed statistically significant trends in these test results related to workers' urine mercury histories. Effects were subclinical, functionally insignificant and most associated with those workers whose urine mercury had exceeded 0.5 mg/L in the previous year. In agreement with previous reports, effects were reversible upon reduction of mercury exposure.
