||Agricultural aviation maintenance personnel, unlike transport aviation maintenance workers, are exposed to pesticides which produce hepatotoxic effects. They have high incidences of diseases of the respiratory system, musculoskeletal system and connective tissue, and of radiculitis during their first 5 years of work, resulting in temporary disability. To improve working conditions, loading of pesticides should take place at loading points provided with special machines to prevent contamination of the workplace air and of workers' skin. All repair work and equipment regulation should be conducted with obligatory use of personal protective equipment. It is necessary to determine total and direct bilirubin and β-lipoproteins, activity of alkaline phosphatase alanine aminotransferase and histidase for timely detection of liver function disorders.
