In order to assess the occupational health risk to workers using pesticides, accurate data on exposure (including knowledge of the primary route of exposure) and on absorption are needed. In addition, a well-defined no-effect level (NOEL) derived from suitable animal data must be available. Biological monitoring, urinary metabolite excretion in particular, frequently is used to indicate whether a worker has been exposed. Interpretation of the toxicological significance of the observed urinary… CONTINUE READING
