Nowadays arsenic trioxid is still used in the hand made glass production in Murano.

Abstract

Nowadays arsenic trioxid is still used in the hand made glass production in Murano. In the last years, many industries have reduced its use but, in some specific lines of production, such as the "bacchetta di vetro" for the secondary "a lume" production, there is still a considerable use. Biological monitoring, carried out through urinary arsenic measurement, shows as workers employed in the mixture preparation and in the furnace work, are still significantly exposed to arsenic, despite the technical preventive measures adopted. We propose further measures to reduce this risk.
