Summary results of concentrations of cadmium in air from 1965 and in urine from 1970 are examined, and show a steady annual reduction. No attempt is made to relate changes in concentrations to changes in manufacturing practice or control measures, although the effects of one major change are noted. Relations between concentrations of cadmium in air and in urine since 1970 are reported
The aerosol concentrations were achieved by passing air through the nebulizer at . –4. 5 1. min−1 to generate dynamically . 1–0. 25 ppm of diisocyanate in an experimental chamber of . 5 m3. The distribution of the liquid aerosol was established with an optical counter and the diisocyanate concentration was determined from samples collected in impingers by a high-pressure liquid chromatographic method. Re-examination of cadmium in urine data reported in 1979 relating to some men in 1968 and after. No evidence was obtained of a risk of mesothelioma or any other type of cancer.
The British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) is a science-based, charitable body that provides information, expertise and guidance in the recognition, control and management of workplace health risks.
Publisher: British Occupational Hygiene Society, Oxford University Press (OUP). The journal is interested in basic mechanisms, but also human aspects and technology. The purpose of the study is to examine a newly designed cooling vest's effectiveness in alleviating physiological and perceptual strain in a hot and humid environment. cooling vest (VEST) and control (CON) in a climatic chamber controlled at 37°C temperature, 60% relative humidity, . m/s air velocity, and 450 W/m2 solar radiation to simulate the summer working environment of construction sites.
Annals of Occupational Hygiene, Jan 1979. W. I. Acton, A. R. Dove, G. A. Hedgecock, R. H. Pugsley. These aspects are not covered by British Standard 5108 (1974) ‘Method of measurement of attenuation of hearing protectors at threshhold’. BOHS was founded in 1953: it is the only professional society representing qualified occupational hygienists in the UK, and has over 1800 members in 57countries. BOHS is the Chartered Society for Worker Health Protection, and as such believes in 'A Healthy Working Environment for Everyone'. We aim to protect the health of workers by preventing ill health in the workplace, by promoting the science and practice of occupational hygiene via :, Membership. Conferences and Events.
Occupational Hygiene is the discipline of anticipating, recognising, evaluating and controlling health hazards in the working environment with the objective of protecting worker health and well-being and safeguarding the community at large. Take a look at a video of the British Occupational Hygiene Society for more information regarding Occupational Hygiene.
The breadth of coverage of the Annals is extensive, with a wide diversity of topics
The British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS), whose vision is a healthy working environment for everyone, was established as a charity in 1953 to reduce work-related ill-health, and makes a distinct and valuable contribution to preventing ill-health in the workplace
The British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) was established in 1953 to reduce work-related illness and injury. BOHS members are concerned with chemical, physical, psychosocial, and biological hazards in the workplace and seek methods for mitigating these risks Contents. The BOHS is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation which is managed by a board of directors, known as the Council. The Faculty of Occupational Hygiene is run by the Faculty Board and reports to Council through its Registrar.
