there is concern about the effects of chronic exposure on special groups such as welders of stainless steel and aluminium. At this stage, there is insufficient information to be conclusive about the effects of welding these metals. This Guide describes some of the potential health hazards associated with welding fumes and gases. No long term exposure health risks associated with LP gas or propane have been reported at low concentrations. At air concentrations below ppm propane is virtually non-toxic. Brief exposures to 10, ppm cause no symptoms; , ppm can produce slight dizziness after a few minutes of exposure, but is not noticeably irritating to the.   However, if you suspect a sewer gas leak and are also experiencing symptoms of high-level exposure, seek emergency medical attention and . Cadmium (Cd) is a soft, malleable, bluish white metal found in zinc ores, and to a much lesser extent, in the cadmium mineral greenockite.

Health Canada completed the Human Health Risk Assessment for Gasoline Exhaust, a comprehensive review and analysis of the potential adverse health effects associated with gasoline fuel use in Canada. The report focuses on gasoline exhaust (GE) and vehicle emissions from on-road and off-road mobile sources (excluding rail, marine and aviation. Gasoline is a complex mixture containing as many as separate hydrocarbons including several with well-established toxicity (e.g., benzene, toluene, xylenes, and n-hexane). However, there is little information available regarding the potential effects from long-term occupational exposure to gasoline .   Welding fumes are a complex mixture composed of different metals. Most welding fumes contain a small percentage of manganese. There is an emerging concern among occupational health officials about the potential neurological effects associated with the exposure to manganese in welding fumes. Diesel and gasoline engine exhausts have been evaluated previously in the IARC Monographs (IARC, ). Since that time, a large number of cohort and case–control studies have been published on the topic, many of which provided high-quality data on exposure and potential confounding factors. General aspects on the methodological advantages and limitations of the various study designs are.
