The sector of the steel industry, in the complex of his productive components, coking, steelworks, foundries, constitute a meaningful part of the national economy. The principal health risk factors are correlated to physical agents like noise and thermal stress and in particular to the presence of chemical agents like inhalable and respirable dusts, crystalline silica, synthetic mineral fibers, metals, vapors of more or less complex organic substances (benzene, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated dibenzo dioxins, polychlorinated dibenzofurans, polychlorinated biphenils, etc.), gases (hydrogen sulfide, carbon monosside, nitrogen oxides. The paper introduces a synthesis of the productive plants, of the dangerous chemical agents, carcinogens and mutagenic to them correlated and potentially present in the sector.
