Activity in the metallurgical production involves some risks of toxicity caused by the characteristics of the materials. Avoidance of such risks determines a stress level of workers. The metals are the principal ones met in modern industry and they are surveyed from so many aspects not only to those inside industry who are concerned with the working environment but also to doctors, physiologists, biochemists and other scientists in various fields and to students. Based on these considerations the paper aims to assess the stress caused at work in a foundry, by applying the psychological experiment method. The results were used in developing of new prevention and protection plan for health and safety work.
