Overview

This timely publication concentrates on the exposure to pesticides by agricultural workers and residential users of pesticides through inhalation and physical contact.

The book discusses more recently discovered risks such as pesticides on indoor carpets and includes new trends in data interpretation.

Occupational & Residential Exposure Assessment for Pesticides complements the other title on pesticide exposure in the series - Pesticide Residues in Drinking Water, by Hamilton/Crossley and is a must for all professionals in the Pesticide Industry as well as academics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"…will be useful to readers who need to understand exposure science and…to conduct pesticide (and other chemical) risk assessment…can also be used as a textbook…" (E-STREAMS, September 2006)

"Before writing this review, I lent my copy of the book to a few close colleagues, some of whom work specifically in the field of operator risk assessment. Most of them ordered their own copies straight away - I think this speaks for itself." (BTS Newsletter, Summer 200

"...what impresses me about this publication is the quality and eminence of the authors and the detail of knowledge that they impart..." (Health & Safety at Work, 1st October 2005)
