Abstract: For hospital personnel, a number of harmful chemicals exist. The paper deal with very diff erent harmful
chemicals, but all chemicals are important and continuing problems where the risks to health, if uncontrolled, are serious. In the research was used descriptive statistical operations and multivariate statistical method, factor analysis (FA), i.e. principal component analysis (PCA). An analysis of 24 organic and inorganic parameters was performed. Results of the correlation analysis suggest that these pollutants pairs might have similar sources or have been aff ected by similar factors. PCA she confi rmed that the mutually correlated elements constitute a group of elements with a similar origin.
