Dr. Parent was involved in assessing potential health problems related to heavy metal exposure in a foundry with over 200 workers. He monitored an overall program related to reduced exposure of the workers. Initially, a study of the extent of employee exposure was carried out by an industrial hygiene firm, while Dr. Parent spoke to groups of workers and interviewed individual workers regarding signs of adverse health effects. He took urine samples for heavy metal analysis in order to provide an assessment of recent exposure and examined blood samples which provided insight into longer-term exposures. He encouraged management to take corrective action to reduce exposures via engineering controls and respiratory protection.
