||Chemical hazards to agricultural workers
||July-Sep. 1991, Vol.6, No.3, p.391-413. 87 ref.
||The focus of this paper is on the acute toxicity of chemical hazards, other than pesticides, likely to be present in agricultural processes. The operations stressed are: fertiliser use; equipment use and repair; sterilisation and fumigation operations; animal confinement hazards; the use of stored products (such as silo-opening hazards). Pesticide toxicity is only summarised at the conclusion and is not discussed in depth. Information in appendices provide recommendations on: working in or near conventional silos; laundering contaminated clothing; emergency medical treatment for acute pesticide poisoning.
