Travaux de revêtement routier: de multiples risques à prendre en compte
Travailler à la fabrication de routes n'est pas sans risque pour les opérateurs, car ils manipulent des enrobés bitumineux chauds qui peuvent présenter des effets sur la santé, soit par les fumées dégagées, soit par contact cutané. Ce dossier présente un état des lieux des différents travaux menés par la profession et les organismes de prévention pour améliorer la prévention de ces risques, ainsi que des méthodes d'évaluation des expositions des travailleurs aux...
Comparative study on exposure of workers and bystanders during pest control of the Oak Processionary Moth by spray application
Biocidal products used for spray application against the oak processionary moth (OPM) require authorisation in accordance with Regulation (EU) No. 528/2012 of the European Parliament for that use. For authorisation, a risk assessment based on exposure estimation is performed for all intended uses of the respective product. Detailed information on the application process and the resulting exposure of operators and of bystanders was lacking until now. It is expected that the main routes of exposure are dermal and inhalation. Spray applications carried out for control of OPM show significant differences...
Harvesters in strawberry fields
A literature review of pesticide exposure, an observation of their work activities, and a model for exposure prediction Strawberry harvesters hand-pick fruit that may result in pesticide exposure from hand foliar contact. This paper included a review of publications on harvester pesticide exposure, an observation of their work activities, and development of an alternative model for pesticide exposure prediction. Previous studies monitored the dermal pesticide exposure of strawberry harvesters and found most of the exposure (>70%) was on the hands. Exposure rates (ERs) were calculated as pesticide...
DERMaL eToolkit
Emergency response personnel are often at risk of getting dangerous chemicals on their skin. Despite the availability of numerous high-quality resources designed to guide emergency management and operations personnel, data gaps continue to exist on specific hazards or scenarios. Available resources contain an overwhelming quantity of data on inhalation exposures, but data related to dermal exposures are more challenging to find. Dermal contact is an important exposure pathway and can present significant health risks [Dotson et al. 2015]. The goal of the DERMaL eToolkit is to provide informational...
Health-care workers and antineoplastic drugs
Evaluating the risks and identifying determinants of exposure Health-care workers may be exposed to hazardous antineoplastic drugs—i.e. drugs used in chemotherapy—when handling them and/or when touching surfaces contaminated by them. Most studies looking at exposures to antineoplastic drugs in hospitals have been limited to select departments and/or workers with certain job titles. This may lead to an underestimation of the risk if all exposures during the circulation of the drug within a facility from cradle to grave (known as the hospital medication system) are not taken into account...
