Fact book on working environments and health uses national data sources to provide an overview of the current situation and latest developments with respect to working environments. Chemical, biological and physical workplace exposures are associated with a higher prevalence of skin disorders, and a study based on our monitoring data estimated that around sixteen percent of Norwegian workers’ skin problems are attributable to exposures at work. Respiratory problems are associated with workplace exposure to mineral dust, metal dust and organic dust, and a study based on our monitoring data indicates that around one in five cases of respiratory disorders in the last month were attributable to these exposures.
