||Systematic literature review of uses and levels of occupational exposure to tetrachloroethylene
||Dec. 2008, Vol.5, No.12, p.807-839. 180 ref.
||This literature survey on occupational exposure to tetrachloroethylene identified 179 documents containing useful descriptive information. Mean exposures are given for several sectors including dry cleaning and machining. Several other sources of tetrachloroethylene exposure are identified, including cleaning mining equipment, testing coal, cleaning animal coats in taxidermy and cleaning film. These results will be useful in population-based, case-control studies for quantifying tetrachloroethylene exposure levels for various jobs.
