Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis: Report by the Industrial Injuries Advisory Council in Accordance with Section 171 of the Social Security Administration Act 1992 Reviewing the Prescription of Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis for Work Involving Exposure to Mists from Metalworking Fluids
The Stationery Office, Jul 12, 2006 - Technology & Engineering - 19 pages
Extrinsic allergic alveolitis (EEA) is a potentially serious respiratory disease caused by exposure to a variety of sensitising agents, and recently there have been three separate outbreaks of EEA reported in UK factories where workers were exposed to mists of metalworking fluids. EEA is already a prescribed disease in relation to several occupational exposures, and this review by the Industrial Injuries Advisory Council recommends its extension to include work involving exposure to mists generated during metalworking.
