||Report of a WHO study group (Geneva, 15-22 June 1981) on health-based limits for occupational exposure to carbaryl, malathion, lindane and 4,6-dinitro-o-cresol. For each pesticide, sections cover: properties, uses, health hazards; metabolism; assessment of exposure; relationship between exposure and effects; conclusions regarding exposure limits; recommendations; research possibilities. Tentative limits for airborne concentrations of carbaryl and lindane are proposed but airborne limits are not recommended for malathion and dinitrocresol. Procedures for monitoring these 2 substances in blood are recommended.
