J Occup Med 1964 Aug; 6(8):335-337
Possible health hazards in a mercury cell chlorine (7782505) plant were studied by means of physical examinations, air analyses, and determinations of mercury (7439976) in urine and blood. Under conditions prevailing in this plant there was no evidence of dangerous absorption of mercury. The analysis of blood for mercury did not yield any useful information in this study. A proper industrial medical program will provide adequate protection for workers exposed to mercury vapors.
