Abstract
Significant health hazards from the fume or dust of copper (7440508), lead (7439921), zinc (7440666), and cadmium (7440439) are not found for most workers in the converter department of a copper smelter, but a potential hazard is cited for ore handlers and skull breakers from airborne lead. Airborne arsenic (7440382) concentrations may indicate a potential for arsenic-induced cancers. Eye and respiratory tract irritation may be the result of sulfur- dioxide (7446095).
