EFFECT OF WELDING AEROSOLS MORTALITY RATES OF WELDERS TAKING FACTORIES OF TERNOPIL AND ZHYTOMYR REGIONS AS AN EXAMPLE

Ternopil State Medical University by I.Gorbachevsky

Full article (PDF), UKR

The effect of welding aerosols of different concentrations depending on the age, work experience on the level of the general mortality and mortality caused by respiratory diseases in workers of welding industry was studied. Methodological approaches to estimating dust loading are proposed.

Key words: welding, aerosols, mortality, age, length of experience, dust loading
