Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The nose and upper airways form the initial area of impact for air pollutants and allergens. The development of nasal allergies in the workplace (occupational rhinitis) may herald subsequent development of occupational asthma. Exposure controls, periodic surveillance, and early intervention may circumvent work-related airways disease and prevent unnecessary worker impairment and disability.
