||Personal exposure to pesticide among workers engaged in pesticide container recycling operations
||Dec. 1994, Vol.55, No.12, p.1154-1163. Illus. 17 ref.
||Environmental exposure monitoring and biological monitoring were carried out among workers engaged in pesticide container recycling at three regional collection sites, a central collection and washing facility and at a steel mill. Exposure levels were highly variable, partly owing to work practices and lapses in protection. Highest levels of exposure were observed for metal washing, metal crushing and metal shredding; sorting and plastic shredding were intermediate and metal melting was associated with very little exposure. Recommendations are proposed for the protection of workers.
