Title Occupational health hazards in the production and application of pesticides.
Bibliographic information 1973, Vol.24, No.4, p.333-339.
Abstract Communication to the Swedish-Yugoslav symposium on pesticides (Milocer, Yugoslavia, 4-8 Dec. 1972). The results of a long-term survey of working conditions and health status of workers in a pesticide manufacturing plant in Serbia are presented. The survey is supplemented by ophthalmological findings and a description of 10 cases of poisoning among workers applying pesticides. The difficulties in assessing health hazards in the course of simultaneous exposure to products known to have toxicodynamic properties are pointed out. The article suggests how preventive measures can be further improved and recommends more systematic monitoring of the combined effects of pesticides, including ophthalmological examinations.
