Abstract

We studied the blood metal level's effects on quality of life of aircraft maintenance workers who exposed metals in the ROKAF. Lead, cadmium and manganese were measured for evaluating exposure state of metals. For evaluating quality of life, SF-36 was used. Blood lead level was positively correlated with SF-36 scores. Thus lead will influence maintenance workers' quality of life.
