||Sources, routes and frequency of pesticide exposure among farmers
||Aug. 1998, Vol.40, No.8, p.697-701. 10 ref.
||In a survey of 191 dairy farmers certified to apply pesticides to field crops, 12% reported never or almost never wearing gloves during application, and 53.7% reported never or almost never wearing other protective gear. 32% reported dermal exposure and 32% reported inhaling pesticides during the last application. Findings suggest that exposure to pesticides was frequent in this sample, whereas use of personal protective equipment was not routine. Topics: crop protection; cross-sectional study; exposure evaluation; ingestion; inhalation; limitation of exposure; personal protective equipment; pesticides; risk awareness; skin absorption; subjective assessment.
