Summary

Methods for determining exposure of pesticides to agricultural workers have been developing for over thirty years. You may ask: what more do we need to know? Worker Exposure to Agrochemicals provides the answer. It contains a compilation of research papers that examine this issue from every angle.
Even with all the information available, there still remains an intense debate over what method - dermal deposition or biological monitoring - provides better results when measuring worker exposure. Researchers almost never realize the same results in concurrent experiments using both methods. The question is: which process is more accurate?
Worker Exposure to Agrochemicals examines the effectiveness of both procedures. Two chapters describe the simultaneous use of both methods and their outcome. The remaining chapters cover risk assessment, protective clothing, Canadian dosimetry, "Jazzercise," a tiered approach to exposure estimation, modeling reentry exposure, performing a dislodgeable residue study, and GLP requirements.
