One hundred and seventy-eight denial laboratory technicians and 69 non-exposed controls participated in an epidemiological respiratory study. Eight technicians who had a mean of 28 years' grinding nonprecious metal alloys were diagnosed as having a simple pneumoconiosis by chest radiograph. Mean value for per cent predicted FVC and FEV[sub 1] were reduced among male nonsmoker technicians compared to male nonsmoker controls: after controlling for age. there was also a reduction in spirometry with increasing work years. An industrial hygiene survey was conducted in 13 laboratories randomly selected from 42 laboratories stratified by size and type of operation in the Sah Lake City, Utah metropolitan area. Personal exposures to beryllium and cobalt exceeded the Threshold Limit Values (TLVs) in one laboratory. Occupational exposures ia dental laboratories need to be controlled to prevent beryllium-related lung disorders as well as simple pneumoconiosis.
