||Elaboration of a quantitative job-exposure matrix for historical exposure to airborne exposures in the Polish rubber industry
||Nov. 2008, Vol.51, No.11, p.852-860. Illus. 30 ref.
||A job-exposure matrix for inhalable aerosols, aromatic amines, and cyclohexane soluble matter was elaborated based on measurements collected routinely between 1981 and 1996 in a large Polish rubber factory. It provides an overview of historical exposure levels and will enable the estimation of lifetime exposure for individual workers in a Polish cohort of rubber workers and further investigation of the associations between specific exposures and cancer risk. Overall, exposures to most substances have deceased in recent years.
