||Critical evaluation of historical occupational aerosol exposure records: Applications to nickel and lead
||Jan. 2003, Vol.47, No.1, p.49-59. Illus. 16 ref.
||This paper describes a model for evaluating individual data sets for occupational aerosol exposures in terms of their usefulness in hazard evaluation or standards setting. Reported occupational exposures to airborne nickel and lead are used as examples. It was found that published data sets are highly inconsistent in terms of the criteria by which the data were obtained, and are notably lacking in the essential details of the methods that were used. The evaluation model described in this paper provides not only a basis for the evaluation of historical exposure data but also guidelines for exposure assessments to be carried out in the future.
