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.
