The Analytical Chemistry of Industrial Poisons, Hazards and Solvents

Nature volume 154, pages 591592 (11 November 1944) | Download Citation



WHETHER we work in office, shop or factory, with hand or brain, we are exposed throughout life to a number of hazards quite outside the powers of the police to prevent. Such hazards are detected by workers who wear no uniform unless it be the white coat of the laboratory, and come under the general heading of industrial hygiene. There is ever-increasing need for their watchfulness as industry and life grow more complex. Industrial poisons, gases, dusts, vapours of solvents, lurk around the corner ready to attack us once or repeatedly until we fall sick or lose our working efficiency.
