Title The setting of an occupational exposure limit for phosphamidon in the workplace - A Chinese approach
Bibliographic information Feb. 1993, Vol.37, No.1, p.89-99. 31 ref.
Abstract As a result of a systematic occupational health survey on the workers exposed to phosphamidon, together with the literature review, a 'maximum allowable concentration' (MAC) for phosphamidon in workplace air is suggested: 0.02mg/m3, on the condition that the route of skin entry be blocked effectively. The standard-setting process in China is compared to the current UK approach.
