Even with all the information available, there still remains an intens e 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 procedur es. Two chapters describe the simultaneous use of both methods and the ir outcome. The remaining chapters cover risk assessment, protective c lothing, Canadian dosimetry, "Jazzercise," a tiered approach to exposu re estimation, modeling reentry exposure, performing a dislodgeable re sidue study, and GLP requirements.

Editorial Reviews

Over the past three decades, various methods for determining the exposure of pesticides to agricultural workers have developed slowly, and gradually resolved into the two broad approaches of dermal deposition techniques and biological monitoring. These were long thought to be incompatible, but recent results from the two sides have been found to agree, and research is now veering toward using them in conjunction. In 11 papers from a spring 1996 gathering in New Orleans, scientists from North America and Europe report their research on such aspects as risk assessment, protective clothing, Canadian dosimetry, modeling re-entry exposure, and performing a dislodgeable residue study.
