||The use of biological indicators capable of monitoring the exposure of farm workers to organophosphorus pesticides is considered for the purpose of evaluating the risk of even limited exposure. The compounds are classified according to the presence of alkyl or phenolic groups and of sulfur, extrapolated from the list of Presidential Decree No.233/88 and the subsequent Ministerial Decree No.258 of August 2nd 1990, implementing relevant EEC directives. Data are presented in tabular format: type of substance (with major pesticides named); toxicological classification; toxic effects; recommended surveillance methods (biological indicators of exposure and effect, tests to be administered at the first medical exam and during periodic visits).
