||The development and evaluation of a retrospective exposure-estimating model is presented. Recent exposure data were obtained from industrial hygiene records and from published reports for petroleum marketing and distribution operations. To adjust this data to past operations, exposure modifiers were developed to account for differences in the workplace, the materials handled, environmental conditions, and tasks performed. Though limited by availability of data, a validation exercise suggested that the model provided accurate exposure estimates for benzene. This approach is proposed where there are reliable data on current exposure and on historical changes in the workplace.
