Results of an intervention to improve lead safety among painting contractors and their employees
Painters are at risk of lead poisoning when preparing surface for painting in older buildings. An intervention strategy was evaluated for improving lead safety in small businesses. 21 painting contractors received 32 hours of training, technical assistance, and a safety manual; their employees attended an 8-hr training session. Impact evaluation involved interviewing participants at baseline, immediately post-intervention and one year later, and conducting contractor focus groups post-intervention. Employers met 15 of the 27 target objectives and workers met 3 of 12; however, even in areas where objectives were not met, both groups made improvements. Motivated contractors and their employees can make moderate improvements in lead-safe practices if provided with extensive training and technical assistance. Changes that are costly, unfamiliar, or perceived as a threat to work quality are more difficult to implement.

Innovative exposure assessment of pesticide uses for appropriate risk assessment
An international workshop on the theme "Innovative exposure assessment of pesticide uses for appropriate risk assessment" was held on 20-22 September 2000, in The Hague, The Netherlands. The international experts represented industry, academia, specialized consultancy agencies and regulatory authorities in Europe, North America and Australia. The workshop was organized around four themes: toxicology studies that are relevant for worker risk assessment; probabilistic exposure assessment is essential for appropriately assessing risks; importance of field use information for assessing the risk of exposure; and appropriate terms for residential exposure. The main goal was to reach international consensus on the harmonization of exposure and risk assessment approaches, and the development of guidance elements for the various bodies in our society that deal with risk assessment for pesticide registration purposes in occupational and residential settings.

Mental health issues in the workplace: A case for a new managerial approach
Anger, stress, and depression in the workplace are growing concerns. The purpose of this study was to assess whether a traditional worksite health promotion program had an impact on mental health factors. Results suggest that these programmes play only a limited role in improving work-related mental health. Rather, management should play a greater role in addressing workplace stress, anger and depression.
