Título Special occupational hazard review for aldrin/dieldrin.
Información bibliográfica DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No.78-201, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 4676 Columbia Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45226, USA, Sep. 1978. 166p. 249 ref.
Resumen This literature review, with other reviews and criteria documents on insecticides, will form the bases for NIOSH recommendations for international occupational health standards. Contents: extent of exposure (use, production, metabolism, pharmacokinetics); toxic effects in animals (acute toxicity, organ-specific effects, effect on reproduction, teratogenesis, carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, cytotoxic effects); human effects (case reports, volunteer studies, exposed workers, epidemiological studies on the general population); dose-response relations. It is recommended that aldrin and dieldrin be controlled and handled as suspected occupational carcinogens and that exposure be reduced to a minimum. The air concentration should not exceed 0.15mg/m3 for both compounds. Skin contact should be avoided.
