Abstract: This study outlines the results of an industrial hygiene and respiratory health assessment of eight coastal saw mills. It looked at airborne metal concentrations in occupational settings, and also evaluated the respiratory health of saw filing tradesmen. The results of the respiratory health assessment provide evidence that the saw filers studied are at risk for work-related increases in acute respiratory and nasal symptoms as well as for measurable reductions in lung function.
