Title Strategies for determining occupational exposures in risk assessments: A review and a proposal for assessing fungicide exposures in the lumber industry
Bibliographic information May 1994, Vol.55, No.5, p.443-449. 45 ref.
Abstract The main strategies for determining exposures for risk assessment were reviewed to select an exposure monitoring protocol for assessing the occupational risks of fungicides in the lumber industry. The methods of application and opportunities for exposure were analyzed in a survey of lumber industry worksites using fungicides. This review illustrates some of the problems with each method and indicates some of the issues that should be investigated in order to determine the optimal strategy for a specific exposure scenario. It suggests that potential for bias must be assessed for each of the strategies that do not entail population-based sampling.
