Health status of workers and employees of the "Electrozinc" plant exposed to hazardous chemical substances

, : Health status of workers and employees of the "Electrozinc" plant exposed to hazardous chemical substances. Meditsina Truda i Promyshlennaia Ekologiia: 33-35

Present technology, sanitary equipment and hygienic measures in the main shops of "Electrozinc" plant are inadequate to prevent toxic pollution of environment. Climate and geographic position of Vladikavkaz city are also considered unfavourable. The air of "Electrozinc" working area and health status of "Electrozinc" employees were studied during past 5 years. Obtained results showed that employees engaged into lead and zinc production at "Electrozinc" are exposed to high concentrations of heavy elements (lead, zinc, cadmium et al.). Marked nonspecific biochemical changes as well as caused by specific exposure to lead and coexisting metals were detected in individuals, who had been considered apparently healthy. High level of transitory disablement morbidity also supports the idea of occupational hazards afflicting the health status of employees. Ecologic situation at "Electrozinc" and in Vladikavkaz necessitates further examination of health status in "Electrozinc" employees and inhabitants of nearby zone, treatment program and measures of primary prophylaxis.
