The machining of minerals containing beryllium gives rise to excess limit-values for beryllium at gem cutter's work places. Goal: determining the health risks for gem cutters of exposure to beryllium and other metals.
Analysis and assessment of toxicological strain
Beryllium values above the determined level were found in urine when limit-values were exceeded, however, no indications of berylliosis or illnesses relating to exposure to beryllium, restrictive ventilation disorders caused by beryllium.
