||Carcinogenic substances at workplaces in foundries - Problems of estimating occupational exposure
||Kanzerogene Gefahrstoffe an Giessereiarbeitsplätzen? Problematik der Abschätzung berufsbedingter stofflicher Belastung [in German]|
||Sep. 1988, Vol.75, No.19, p.579-584. Illus. 32 ref.
||Dose-effect relationships for substances with and without response thresholds are shown in graphs. These are used to explain why for carcinogens no limit values for exposure in the workplace can be derived. Epidemiologic findings are reviewed for the major carcinogens occurring at workplaces in foundries, such as benzene, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (mainly benzo(a)pyrene), nitrosamines (mainly dimethylnitrosoamine) and nitrosamides.
