Stress in farmers: A survey of farmers in England and Wales
A survey of 500 farmers in England and Wales showed that potential sources of stress included problems with record keeping and paperwork, difficulty understanding forms, problems arising from the effects of new legislation and regulations and financial problems. The majority of farmers worked over 10h a day and many had health problems which interfered with their work. Results confirm findings from several regional studies that many farmers are experiencing considerable stress from various causes. Local and national initiatives to assist farmers should be encouraged. Topics: agriculture; economic aspects; hours of work; legal aspects; mental stress; neuropsychic stress; questionnaire survey; social aspects; stress factors.

Immediate skin and mucosal symptoms from pot plants and vegetables in gardeners and greenhouse workers
Short-lived occupational skin symptoms of an irritant or urticarial nature were commonly reported among 253 gardeners and greenhouse workers. In tests for immediate skin and mucosal symptoms, 33% of those tested had at least one positive reaction, and a family history of, or personal, atopy was significantly more prevalent among these workers compared to those with negative reactions. Positive histamine release tests indicated a possible immunologic aetiology in reactions to some species of plants. Because of the high prevalence of short-lived skin symptoms and because contact urticaria may present itself as a dermatitis, it is recommended that patch tests should be supplemented with tests for immediate reactions. Topics: allergy tests; eczema; epidemiologic study; flower and perfume-plant growing; histamine release; horticulture; hypersensitivity; irritation; plants; skin allergies; skin tests; urticaria.

Constraints on the adoption of safety measures on Australian farms
Two clusters of factors constraining the adoption of safety measures on Australian farms have been identified. First, a prevailing complacency about farm safety among farmers which appears to be based partly on a low perception of personal risk or a machismo attitude toward risk-taking and resistance to changing traditional work practices. Second, the uncertain economic conditions in agriculture which are affecting farmers' ability to maintain and replace farm machinery and equipment and to introduce safety innovations and protective equipment. Some new strategies and approaches are suggested. Topics: agricultural equipment; agriculture; Australia; economic aspects; elementary occupations; implementation of control measures; questionnaire survey; risk awareness; role of government; safe working methods; safety and health training; technical development.

The computer gives the answer. Surveillance of industrial injuries and ways to improve it
Kompjuter daet otvet. Monitoring proizvodstvennogo travmatizma i puti ego soveršenstvovanija [in Russian]
The All-Russian Scientific Research Institute for Labour Protection of the Ministry of Agriculture has built a database of fatal occupational accidents in agroindustrial complexes (agrarno-promy¿lennyj kompleks - APK), covering the years 1988-1996. Data were encoded from standard report forms. Analysis of the resulting 1.5 megabyte database gave many interesting results. For example, the third most dangerous occupation proved to be handling cattle (up to 130 fatalities per year), after tractor operation and automotive transport (over 700 and about 400 fatalities per year, respectively); hundreds of deaths were attributable to lack of training or information; some models of equipment were associated with fatalities. It would be useful to extend this system to other sectors across the Russian Federation, standardizing and automating data acquisition. Topics: agricultural operations; agriculture; analysis of accident causes; computer applications; fatalities; Russian Federation; statistical aspects.

Contact dermatitis in Alstroemeria workers
In a study of 153 horticultural workers cultivating Alstroemeria, the 12-month prevalence of major hand dermatitis was 29.5% and of minor dermatitis 7.4%. Of these workers, 52.1% were sensitized for tulipalin A. Several personal and work-related factors played a role in the multifactorial aetiology of hand dermatitis. Factors which showed a significant relationship with major hand dermatitis were female sex, atopic dermatitis, chapped hands and the frequency of washing hands. Alstroemeria workers are at risk of developing contact dermatitis and it may be useful to carry out an educational campaign to lower the high prevalence. Topics: Alstroemeria; dermatological examinations; eczema; flower and perfume-plant growing; flowers; irritation; Netherlands; risk factors; sensitization dermatitis; skin tests.

Respiratory tract inflammation in swine confinement workers studied using induced sputum and exhaled nitric oxide
In a study of 24 swine confinement workers and 14 urban normal control subjects, the swine confinement workers were significantly more likely to report wheezing, cough and sinusitis symptoms than were controls. Macrophages were significantly elevated in the induced sputum samples of the swine confinement workers compared to controls, while there was no difference in numbers of neutrophils. A small elevation in mean exhaled nitric oxide was seen in the swine confinement worker compared tocontrols. Spirometry values did not differ between the two groups. These two techniques, induced sputum and exhaled nitric oxide, may be used to study airway inflammation in swine confinement workers. Topics: agriculture; nitric oxide; cross-sectional study; determination in exhaled air; livestock rearing; respiratory diseases; sinusitis; sputum cytology; swine; ventilatory capacity.

Use of a life events calendar approach to elicit occupational history from farmers
Interviews of farmers, focus groups and rural men, primarily African-Americans, were conducted to create a questionnaire for obtaining farm history information within the context of personal life events. Farmers used both personal events and national events (as well as events relating directly to farming) to recall their activities. These subjects had extensive history of farming (10-75 years) and chemical use. The life events calendar provided a useful tool to facilitate the recall of a lifetime of agricultural activity. Life events calendars are useful additions to the tools available for retrospective occupational exposure assessment. Topics: agriculture; anamnesis; epidemiology; exposure evaluation; harmful substances; questionnaire survey.

Total and viable airborne bacterial load in two different agricultural environments using gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry and culture: A prototype study
Airborne bacterial exposure was monitored in a stable and in a dairy by measuring levels of muramic acid and hydroxy fatty acids, markers of specific bacterial components. A conventional culture technique was used to assess the viable microbial content of airborne dust. Muramic acid levels correlated with hydroxy fatty acid and dust levels in both environments. Results suggest that nonculture based approaches and culture provide complementary but independent measurements of airborne biopollution. Topics: agriculture; airborne dust; bacteria; bacteriology; dairy farming; determination in air; fatty acids; gas chromatography; mass spectrometry; sampling and analysis.

Respiratory symptoms, spirometry and chronic occupational paraquat exposure
In a study of 134 workers exposed to paraquat at 15 Nicaraguan banana plantations, 53% reported having experienced a skin rash or burn resulting from paraquat exposure, 25% reported epistaxis, 58% nail damage and 42% paraquat splashed in the eyes. There was a consistent dose-response relationship between intensity of exposure and the prevalence of dyspnoea. There was a three-fold increase in episodic wheezing accompanied by shortness of breath among the more intensely exposed workers. The high prevalence of respiratory symptoms associated with paraquat exposure, in the absence of spirometric abnormalities, could be a result of unmeasured gas exchange abnormalities among workers with long-term exposure to paraquat. Topics: chemical burns; crop protection; cross-sectional study; dose-response relationship; dyspnoea; functional respiratory disorders; long-term exposure; nail diseases; Nicaragua; paraquat; plantations; respiratory diseases; skin eruption; ventilatory capacity.
