ABSTRACT Objective: To conduct a literature review to determine the types of information that existing dermal pesticide monitoring data could provide for future pesticide exposure assessment in occupational epidemiology. Methods: A systematic literature search was performed on eight online databases. Two screening phases with predetermined criteria identified the qualifying literature. Standard information and dermal pesticide monitoring data were recorded and summarized from each qualifying… 

Pesticide Exposure in Fruit-Growers: Comparing Levels and Determinants Assessed under Usual Conditions of Work (CANEPA Study) with Those Predicted by Registration Process (Agricultural Operator Exposure Model)

Knowledge of pesticide exposure levels in farmers is necessary for epidemiological studies and regulatory purposes. In the European pesticide registration process, operators’ exposure is predicted

The greenhouse work environment: a modifier of occupational pesticide exposure?

Development of tailored guidelines for exposure control strategies to better suit the level of uniqueness of greenhouse agriculture seems warranted.

Characterising occupational exposure to glyphosate among amenity horticulturists

Occupational glyphosate exposures among amenity horticulturalists are higher than expected from environmental exposure alone and comparable with agricultural studies.

The Safe Use of Pesticides: A Risk Assessment Procedure for the Enhancement of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Management

The present study is focused on the development of an easy-to-use tool for carrying out occupational risk assessment of agricultural activities related to the use of pesticides, providing a simplified model for its practical application by farmers.

Oxidative stress and DNA damage in agricultural workers after exposure to pesticides

The present investigation results seem to indicate a mild augment in oxidative stress associated with pesticide exposure, followed by an adaptive response to increase the antioxidant defenses to prevent sustained oxidative adverse effects stress.

Retrospective pesticide exposure assessment for studying multiple myeloma risk for farm work in British Columbia, Canada

It is suggested that a large number of the characters in the story can be traced back to the author’s home country, the United Kingdom, in the form of diaries written in the year in which they were written.

Penurunan Kadar Enzim Kolinesterase Tenaga Sprayer di Perkebunan Kelapa Sawit

Latar belakang: Pestisida golongan organofosfat bersifat menghambat aktivitas enzim kolinesterase di dalam tubuh. Pekerja yang bertugas untuk melakukan penyemprotan pestisida memiliki risiko yang

Evaluating Glyphosate Exposure Routes and Their Contribution to Total Body Burden: A Study Among Amenity Horticulturalists

Data show the dermal exposure is the prominent route of exposure in comparison to inadvertent ingestion but inadvertent ingest may contribute to overall body burden.



A method for assessing occupational pesticide exposures of farmworkers.

Although the evaluation was limited, the model appeared to work well, but more testing is needed to increase understanding of what affects the exposures of farmworkers.

A quantitative approach for estimating exposure to pesticides in the Agricultural Health Study.

A quantitative method to estimate long-term chemical-specific pesticide exposures in a large prospective cohort study of more than 58000 pesticide applicators in North Carolina and Iowa found that the take-home questionnaire sub-cohort of applicators is representative of the entire cohort in terms of exposure.

Comparison of assessment methods for pesticide exposure in a case-control interview study.

The authors compared five different methods of using interview information to assess occupational pesticide exposure in a US-Canada case-control study of neuroblastoma, finding that exposure-specific questions about work activities can help investigators distinguish truly exposed individuals from those who report exposure but are unlikely to be exposed above background levels.

Is farm-related job title an adequate surrogate for pesticide exposure in occupational cancer epidemiology?

Objectives: Accurate assessment of exposure is a key factor in occupational epidemiology but can be problematic, particularly where exposures of interest may be many decades removed from relevant

Dermal exposure assessment in occupational epidemiologic research.

It is anticipated that, in the near future, dermal exposure assessment in epidemiologic research will be based generally on expert judgment and to some degree on process-specific exposure models.

Determination of potential dermal exposure during application of crop protection products by boom spraying.

The findings of a study of potential dermal exposure during boom spraying of an oil-seed rape crop are presented and the data for mixing and loading generated in the 1980s are inappropriate for prediction of operator exposure and consequent calculation of margin of safety for a product.

An Updated Algorithm for Estimation of Pesticide Exposure Intensity in the Agricultural Health Study

The weighting factors for the revised algorithm now incorporate exposure measurements taken on Agricultural Health Study (AHS) participants for the application methods and personal protective equipment (PPE) commonly reported by study participants.

Exposure to captan in fruit growing.

Large-scale exposure surveys were carried out during application of pesticides and during reentry activities, and differences in total exposure, including exposure inside the home, between the fruit grower and the son were small.

Exposure of Air Blast Applicators to Ethyl Parathion and Methyl Parathion in Orchards: A Comparison of Australian Conditions to Overseas Predictive Exposure Models

Abstract In Australia, the registrations of ethyl parathion and methyl parathion are being reviewed under the National Registration Authority's existing pesticide assessment program. A study was
