  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To evaluate the effect of interventions aimed at preventing the onset of occupational asthma among workers exposed to asthmagens in occupational settings. We will compare the actual intervention with an alternative intervention, or no intervention. We will evaluate asthma symptoms, lung function and measures of exposure to asthmagens.
