ABSTRACT

Evaluation of Antimony and Mercury Exposure in Fire Fighters   [open pdf - 4MB]

"NIOSH [National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health] investigators evaluated fire fighters' exposure to antimony. Wearing pants made of FireWear fabric did not cause elevated levels of antimony among fire fighters or pose a health hazard from antimony exposure to those who wore them. We recommend continued use of station uniforms that comply with the NFPA [National Fire Protection Association] 1975 standard."
