Título Assessment of the risk of exposure to pesticides by farmers in Quebec
Título original Mesure du risque d'exposition aux pesticides pour les producteurs agricoles du Québec [en francés]
Información bibliográfica Summer 1988, Vol.4, No.2, p.S9-S14. Bibl.
Resumen Findings of a questionnaire survey show that the consulted workers safely executed only 42% to 60% of the analysed tasks even though their level of awareness and judgement of safe work methods is approximately 70% to 86%. It seems that agricultural producers have a high risk level of exposure to pesticides, not because of their lack of awareness of the existence of safe work methods but rather because of their lack of motivation to implement them. It is assumed that producers mainly need to be informed of the real toxicity of pesticides in order to accurately gauge the risk associated with the use of these products.
