Abstract
Biologic sampling of employee's hair, blood, and urine, and air measurements of copper (7440508), tin (7439921), and lead (7440315) dusts in a plant manufacturing musical bells indicate that exposure to bronze dust is nontoxic. Discoloration of one employee's hair is due to interaction of lipids on the scalp and hair with the bronze dust and is only of cosmetic significance.
