Abstract: [Objective] To understand the occupational hazards at gasoline stations and their potential effects on workers ’health in Zhongshan City. [Methods] Totally 35 gasoline stations were investigated and 622 workers(315 worked in the fueling plug areas and 307 worked in the office rooms) were studied. The airborne concentration of gasoline,benzene,toluene,xylene and n-hexane both at fueling plug areas and office rooms were measured. The occupational health examination data of these workers were collected and evaluated. [Results] The time weighted average concentrations of gasoline,benzene,toluene,xylene,and nhexane in the fueling plug areas were(76.73 ± 7.03)mg/m3,(0.25 ± 0.03)mg/m3,(0.63 ± 0.13)mg/m3,(0.26 ± 0.04)mg/m3,and(1.25 ± 0.09)mg/m3,respectively,while no chemicals were detected in the office rooms. The hemoglobin level of the workers working in the fueling plug areas was lower than those working in the office rooms(P < 0.05),while the abnormal rate of hemoglobin was higher(P < 0.05). The blood glucose concentration and abnormal rate of the workers working in the fueling plug areas were higher(P < 0.05). [Conclusion] The abnormal rates of blood glucose and hemoglobin concentration of workers engaged in fueling were higher,and the occupational health monitoring and surveillance of these workers should be strengthened.
