The law D.Lgs 25/2002 provides the lowest qualifications for the protection of workers exposed to chemical risks. Our research aim at investigating acute and chronic pathologies related to the exposure to chemical pollutants used. With this purpose we have examined 42 subjects assigned to the laboratory of the Department of Chemistry of Palermo, exposed to chemical substances. We have also examined a control group of 10 people non exposed, belonging to the same Department. Our study has shown that, previous a correct information and training of workers, the right use of techniques, working methods and the use of personal protection devices reduce chemical risks.
