Occupational exposure to mineral oils may occur among workers in various industries, including the manufacture of automobiles, airplanes, steel products, screws, pipes, and transformers.

Workers in brass and aluminum production, engine repair, copper mining, and newspaper and commercial printing may also be exposed to mineral oils.

The personal ambient exposure level of TCE for manual cleaning workers was ppm and the regional ambient exposure level of TCE for manual polishing workers was in At that time, the percentage of enterprises with ambient exposure levels higher than the occupational exposure limit set by the government (i.e., 75 ppm) was % in.

Introduction. It was reported in that occupational cholangiocarcinoma occurred among workers exposed to 1,2-dichloropropane (DCP) and dichloromethane (DCM) in a small-sized offset printing company in Osaka, Japan 1) and that the printing workers were exposed to extremely high concentrations of DCP ( ppm) and DCM ( ppm) 2).This exposure has raised serious.

Health and safety has been prioritized in oil and gas industry for many years. Still, occupational hygiene exposures aren't often taken with proper care to determine the true risk to workers. The proposed protocol for end-of-service-life evaluation of protective gloves exposed to mineral oils and mechanical factors may serve as a useful tool for employers and workers by providing reliable information about the approximate actual period.
