Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology, 07/11/2012
Adela Y et al. – The findings of the study have clearly demonstrated that the blood lead levels (BLLs) of automotive–garage workers in Jimma town are considerably high with a range of 11.73 – 36.52 mug/dL and the workers are in danger of impending lead toxicity. The BLLs of the workers are influenced by their occupational practices, chewing Catha adulis leaves at the workplace, and the time spent working in an automotive garage.
