    Abstract

    Objectives: To investigate associations between occupational exposure to solvents and metals and fixed airflow obstruction using post-bronchodilator spirometry. Methods: From 1,335 participants in the 2002-2008 follow-up of the Tasmanian Longitudinal Health Study (TAHS) cohort who completed lung function testing and lifetime work history calendars. Ever exposure and cumulative-exposure-unit-years were calculated using the ALOHA+Job Exposure Matrix. Fixed AO was defined by post-bronchodilator FEV1/FVC
