Title Formaldehyde exposure data in U.S. industries from OSHA air sampling data
Bibliographic information Sep. 2008, Vol.5, No.9, p.575-587. 37 ref.
Abstract Formaldehyde exposure data recorded in the United States Integrated Management Information System between 1979 and 2001 were collected to elaborate a multi-industry retrospective picture of formaldehyde exposures and to identify exposure determinants. A total of 5228 personal measurement results were analyzed with linear mixed-effect models. The results provide useful insight on formaldehyde occupational exposure in the United States in the last two decades.
