Resumen

QUIROZ CARRANZA, Joaquín Antonio; VIDAL LIMON, Abraham Marcelino  y  TORRES TORRES, Jesús Alejandro. WOOD DUST GENERATION IN WORKSHOPS SCHOOL LUTE OF THE INSTITUTO NACIONAL DE BELLAS ARTES Y LITERATURA, MEXICO. Rev. Int. Contam. Ambient [online]. 2017, vol.33, n.1, pp.65-73. ISSN 0188-4999.  https://doi.org/10.20937/rica.2017.33.01.06.

The aim of this work was to identify the risk of exposure to wood dust in workshops of musical instruments, at Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura's Violin Making School, Mexico, since such exposure is associated to allergic and non-allergic diseases, such as dermatitis, conjunctivitis-rhinitis, asthma, extrinsic allergic alveolitis and cancer, among others. The amount of particles equal to or less than 2.5 μm present in the air of three workshops of musical instruments was analyzed. Two gravimetric analyses were made: one for four days in twenty-four-hour cycles in three workshops, and the other for ten days in four-hour cycles in three workshops. Additionally, a survey on public perception of indoor air pollution with an emphasis on the effects of wood dust on health was performed. This survey was applied to students and professors of the institution. The gravimetric results showed that the concentration of wood dust on indoor air of the studied workshops exceeds national and several international standards, evidenced through malaise and symptoms expressed by users of the workshops of musical instruments.
