Title Reduction of pesticide exposure with protective clothing for applicators and mixers
Bibliographic information June 1982, Vol.22, No.6, p.464-468. Illus. 15 ref.
Abstract Report of studies to evaluate the protection afforded to pesticide spraying and mixing workers by wearing different types of work and protective clothing over a 4-week period. The degree of protection provided was assessed by measuring the percentage of penetration of ethion through clothing and by measuring the daily urinary excretion of diethyl phosphate (one of the urinary alkyl phosphate metabolites of ethion). Overalls provided significantly greater protection than did regular clothing and the use of respirators.
