||Applications and findings of an occupational exposure database for synthetic vitreous fibers
||Mar. 2009, Vol.6, No.3, p.143-150. 15 ref.
||Occupational exposure databases are being used increasingly to characterize worker exposures in industries involving a wide variety of workplace scenarios. The glass fibre and rock wool industries in the United States have developed a large exposure database that can be used to estimate worker exposures by industry sector, fibre type, product type, and job function. This article describes the development of this database as part of a collaborative programme between industry and OSHA and summarizes the findings and potential applications of the database.
