Ten workers suffered from respiratory complaints after spray impregnation of hardwood furniture with a waterproofing product that contained a fluorinated acrylate copolymer in an aqueous suspension. One litre of the product was sprayed during 4 min inside a workshop area with a volume of ca. 2 400 m 3 . A worker, who entered the workshop 3 h after the impregnation, was hospitalised with dyspnea, severe hypoxia, cough, blank sputum, fever, tremors and tingling extremities. Later a severe chemical...

SummaryBackground A high prevalence of contact dermatitis (CD) and respiratory symptoms has been observed in the construction industry, probably due to widespread exposure to irritants and allergens. It is unknown whether carriers of loss-of-function mutations in the gene encoding filaggrin (FLG), a known risk gene for eczema and asthma, are at increased risk. Objectives To investigate associations of FLG mutations with CD and respiratory symptoms in Dutch construction workers. Methods A questio...

Objectives To investigate exposures, respiratory symptoms, lung function and exposure–response relationships among aluminium cast-house workers. Methods A cross-sectional study was conducted among 182 workers. Exposure data were used to model exposure to irritants. Lung function and questionnaire data on respiratory symptoms were compared to a general population sample and an internal reference group. Blood samples were taken from 156 workers to examine total IgE, eosinophils and sensitisation t...

Identification of work-related allergy, particularly work-related asthma, in a (nationwide) medical surveillance programme among bakery workers requires an effective and efficient strategy. Bakers at high risk of having work-related allergy were indentified by use of a questionnaire-based prediction model for work-related sensitisation. The questionnaire was applied among 5,325 participating bakers. Sequential diagnostic investigations were performed only in those with an elevated risk. Performa...

Objectives: To investigate sensitisation and respiratory health among workers who produce liquid detergent products and handle liquid detergent enzymes. Methods: We performed a cross-sectional study among 109 eligible workers of a detergent products plant. 108 were interviewed for respiratory and allergic symptoms and 106 blood samples were taken from them to examine sensitisation to enzymes. Those sensitised to ⩾1 enzymes were referred for clinical evaluation. Workers and representatives were i...

The Health Council of the Netherlands published a report in which the best procedure and method for recommending health-based occupational exposure limits (OELs) for inhaled allergens were identified by evaluating the scientific state of the art. Many respiratory disorders in the workplace arise from inhalation of substances which can cause allergy. To protect workers against respiratory allergy, various preventive measures are taken, one of them being reduction of exposure by setting legally bi...

Objectives: Four diacetyl workers were found to have bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome. Exposures, respiratory symptoms, lung function and exposure–response relationships were investigated. Methods: 175 workers from a plant producing diacetyl between 1960 and 2003 were investigated. Exposure data were used to model diacetyl exposure. Lung function and questionnaire data on respiratory symptoms were compared to a general population sample and respiratory symptoms to an internal reference group. R...
