OBJECTIVES To assess respiratory morbidity over several cross sectional phases in the European carbon black manufacturing industry. METHODS Participants completed an amended (and translated) MRC respiratory morbidity questionnaire with additional questions on previous exposures, job history, etc, and spirometry traces in each phase. Concurrent with the health outcome measures, personal exposure to inhalable dust was measured. RESULTS Percentage participation rose from 90% in phase 2 (19… CONTINUE READING
