In this work, Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (FAAS) was applied for the determination of Cu, Fe, Mg, Mn, Ni, and Zn in twenty –four hair samples. The samples were collected covering different ages and gender. The samples are divided as, seventeen samples from people which assumed to be environmentally healthy (control) and seven samples from different worker’s people such as Iron worker, Cement worker and Duco worker (exposed). Samples were brought into solution using HNO3 and H2O2. In three example samples the molecular structure of the human hair was studied using Fourier Transformer Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) in the range of 200- 4000 cm -1.The contamination of the sample was discussed for different samples.
