  2. 2. Exposure to trichloramine, trihalomethanes and endotoxins : adverse respiratory and ocular effects among Swedish indoor swimming pool workers

    Author : Jessica Westerlund; Pål Graff; Louise Fornander; Håkan Löfstedt; Christer Janson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Trichloramine; trihalomethanes; endotoxins; occupational exposure; ocular health effects; respiratory health effects; swimming pool facilities;

    Abstract : Indoor swimming pool facilities often use chlorine for pool water disinfection. Chlorine can also contribute to the formation of unwanted disinfection byproducts (DBPs). Trichloramine and trihalomethanes (THMs) are DBPs formed in swimming pool water and swimming pool air causing occupational exposure. READ MORE
