Title Fenvalerate
Bibliographic information World Health Organization, Distribution and Sales Service, 1990. 121p. Illus. Bibl. Price: CHF 15.00.
Abstract Fenvalerate can induce numbness, itching, tingling and burning sensations in exposed workers. Clinical studies showed that these sensations develop with a latent period of approximately 30 minutes, peak by 8 hours and deteriorate after 24 hours. Some poisoning cases have resulted from over-exposure of workers due to neglect of safety precautions. With reasonable work practices, hygiene measures and safety precautions, fenvalerate is unlikely to present a hazard to those occupationally exposed. Detailed summary in French.
