Abstract: MULTIELEMENTAL ANALYSIS, USING NEUTRON ACTIVATION, HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT ON URINE, WHOLE BLOOD, PUBLIC HAIR AND TOENAILS OF THIRDY SUBJECTS OCCUPATIONALLY EXPOSED TO HARD METAL DUSTS. A HIGH CONCENTRATION OF CO, W AND CR IS OBSERVED IN ALL SAMPLES ANALYSED. THE CONCENTRATIONS DETERMINED, WHEN SUBJECTED TO STATISTICAL ANALYSIS USING PATTERN RECOGNITION TECHNIQUES (E.G. CLUSTER ANALYSIS), INDICATED A POSITIVE CORRELATION, AT P = 0.001, FOR THE PAIR (CO, W) IN URINE AND BLOOD AS WELL AS A POSSIBLE INFLUENCE OF CR ON THIS PAIR.
