Exposure of spray operators to paraquat

    British journal of industrial medicine
  • 1969
Investigations in two field-trials in Malaysian rubber plantations have shown that ordinary care in personal hygiene is sufficient to prevent any hazard from surface injury or from systemic absorption in spray operators to paraquat.
Industrial hygiene data: compliance, dosage and clinical relevance.
Much of the data collected by industrial hygienists on levels of airborne contaminants in the workplace is of marginal relevance to the needs and interests of physicians practicing occupational medicine, so increased attention should be devoted to basing sampling intervals more directly on toxicological measurements.
Review of Skin Permeation Hazard of Bitumen Fumes
The present study aimed to update and review the strength of evidence of scientific knowledge on the skin permeation hazard of bitumen fumes among workers.
Occupational hepatitis caused by methylenedianiline

It was concluded that methylenedianiline, which was used as the curing agent for the epoxy resin, was the likely hepatotoxin on the basis of marked similarities of workmen's symptoms and signs to those described in other published reports about toxic exposure to this compound.
Death Due to Inhalation of Industrial Acetylene
The circumstances surrounding the death of a 40-year-old male with presumptive evidence of abuse of the substance and subsequent death are outlined.
Development of occupational exposure limits for the Hanford tank farms
The methods used to determine the chemicals of potential concern (COPCs) and the resultant development of screening values and Acceptable Occupational Exposure Limits (AOELs) for these COPCs are presented.
The History and Biological Basis of Occupational Exposure Limits for Chemical Agents
It is clear that as occupational health professionals develop a better understanding of toxicology and medicine, techniques for quantitatively accounting for pharmacokinetic differences among chemicals, and better knowledge of the mechanisms of action of toxicants, more refined approaches for identifying safe levels of exposure will be developed.

Metallic Mercury Contamination of the Dental Operatory
The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists 1971 standard threshold limit value (TLV) of 0.55 mgHg/m of air was found to be exceeded frequently in a sample of 60 dental operatories
Toxicological Effects of Inhalation Exposure to Trichloroethylene on Serum Immunoglobulin and Electrolyte Levels in Rats
Sub-acute inhalation exposure to TCE is related to the electrolyte and immunoglobulin toxicity in the form of increased Ca, P, IgA, IgG and IgM and decreased Cl, Na and IgE.


Behavioral Toxicologic Studies of Dieldrin, DDT, and Ruelene in Sheep
Behavioral toxicology is a new field with a relatively small group of full-time dedicated workers, and there is a deficiency of clearly defined examples of where behavioral toxicological data has demonstrated adverse health effects at exposure levels lower than those required to cause other types of Physiopathologie alterations.
Long-term occupational exposure to the insecticides aldrin dieldrin, endrin, and telodrin
Fifty-two of them had left employment at the time of the original publication and could be traced and their disease pattern and general well-being were not different from those in the original group.
Insecticide residues in human milk from Arkansas and Mississippi, 1973-74.
Between September 1973 and February 1974, 57 samples of human milk were collected from women residing in selected areas of Arkansas and Mississippi, and trace amounts of o,p'-DDT and polychlorinated biphenyls were also detected.
