This study was carried out in a car factory at workplaces in various states of activity. The measurements of substances enlisted as carcinogenic found at workplaces in some departments in 1995-1997 was carried out as well as the evaluation of microclimatic conditions and the evaluation of sick absenteism in the whole factory. Analysis of results revealed that microclimates in the rooms in the studied departments did not exceed permissible hygienic standards, except for some workplaces in the suspension springs department and the tool room. The analysis of exposure to particular/specific factors in 1995-1997 enlisted among carcinogenic substances did not reveal any toxicological health hazard. Sick absenteism in the whole factory and studied departments in the analyzed period varied. The prevailing group of diseases were diseases of the respiratory system. Morbidity from cancer was low.
