Título Trends in exposure of veterinarians to physical and chemical hazards and use of protection practices
Información bibliográfica Jan. 2008, Vol.81, No.3, p.371-378. 12 ref.
Resumen The objective of this study was to determine whether exposure to physical and chemical occupational hazards and use of protective practices has changed in recent veterinary graduates, and to describe trends in exposure to occupational hazards and use of protective practices over time. It involved a cohort of veterinarians who graduated from four Australian veterinary schools between 1960 and 2000 and were currently in clinical practice. A self-completed postal questionnaire was used to collect personal details, professional history since graduation, and details of occupational hazards and protective practices used. The prevalence of occupational hazards and use of protective practices was examined by decade of graduation adjusting for gender, type of practice and number of hours worked. Findings are discussed.
