Abstract
Clinical signs, indicators and epidemiological considerations used to recognize occupational exposure are given for several respiratory diseases in order to illustrate the epidemiological approach in occupational medicine. In addition two standardized classification systems of respiratory signs (the Medical Research Council Questionnaire and the International Labour Office classification of the pneumoconioses) are discussed. Diseases included are ulceration of the nasal septum associated with exposure to dusts containing chromates, chronic bronchitis, pneumoconioses, asbestosis and cancer of the respiratory tract. The problem of determining the role of a respiratory tract carcinogen in the development of disease among workers is briefly discussed.
