Título Effect of an intervention aimed at reducing the risk of allergic respiratory disease in bakers: Change in flour dust and fungal alpha-amylase levels
Información bibliográfica Aug. 2009, Vol.66, No.8, p.543-549. Illus. 39 ref.
Resumen This study evaluated the effectiveness of an intervention programme aimed at reducing exposure to flour dust in the bakery products industry in the Netherlands. Data from several measurement surveys collected before and after the intervention were used to evaluate exposure over time. Measurements were based on personal sampling and analysis of flour dust and fungal α-amylase concentrations. The limited reduction in exposure levels indicates that a more rigorous approach is needed to substantially decrease the exposure levels to flour dust and related allergens.
