ABSTRACT
The article presents a study investigating whether exposure to dust from absorbent hygiene products containing superabsorbent polymer is related to symptoms from the airways and from the eyes. The study also estimated the current exposure to superabsorbent polymer among production and maintenance workers in a plant involved in the production of hygiene products. The study revealed that workers manufacturing diapers in the hygiene industry have an increased prevalence of symptoms from the nose.
