Título Medical examination of personnel exposed to lindane and/or DDT during treatment of conifer plants - A comparative study
Título original Yrkesmedicinsk kontroll av berörd personal vid lindan- resp DDT-behandling av barrträdsplantor - En jämförelse [en sueco]
Información bibliográfica Arbete och hälsa - Vetenskaplig skriftserie 1977:7, Arbetarskyddsstyrelsen, Fack, 100 26 Stockholm 34, Sweden, 1977. 63p. Illus. 31 ref.
Resumen Exposure of workers dipping and tunnel or field spraying was determined as well as for workers handling the treated plants. The concentrations of the substances in personal air samples above the treated plants were also determined. The uptake was measured as concentration in the plasma. The exposure varied a great deal but the concentration of lindane or DDT in air was never higher than one-half the USA threshold limit value. No uptake of DDT (increased DDT in plasma) occurred. Working with lindane gave a small, variable but significant increase of the lindane concentration in plasma, which disappeared very rapidly when exposure stopped. The concentration of lindane in plasma never was high enough to cause liver enzyme induction. There were no symptoms related to the exposure.
