Occupational exposure to trichloroethylene (TRI) was studied by analysis of environmental air and urine from 49 workers operating in a special printing house on glass. For the measurement of environmental concentration of TRI (Cenv), the ambient air was sampled using personal passive dosimeters. The activated charcoal was desorbed with carbon disulfide and injected into a gas-cromatograph - mass spectrometer (GC-MSD). The biological monitoring of exposed workers was conducted by determining the… CONTINUE READING
