||Hygiene assessments of mixer and applicator exposures to pesticides and fertilisers were made at nine lawn-spraying companies in Ontario (Canada). Overall health and safety programmes of the companies varied widely, but in most cases advice was given to upgrade hygiene and emergency response capabilities and to minimise drifting of spray mists. Although only one of the nine companies conducts regular biological monitoring to ensure the adequacy of its control measures, controls in place were generally adequate and the health of workers is considered unlikely to be adversely affected by mixing and/or applying lawn spray chemicals.
