Workplace Strategies: Risk of Impairment from Cannabis
When workers are impaired on the job, whether by fatigue, use of drugs, or consumption of alcohol, it can have serious consequences. This white paper discusses the implications associated with the use of cannabis for both therapeutic and recreational purposes. It includes information for employers, workers, and others interested in workplace health and safety, and offers guidance on how to: •address the potential for impairment as part of a hazard assessment •establish a concise policy and program on the use of any substance that can cause impairment •determine the actions the workplace...
Occupational Exposure to Cyclophosphamide in Nurses at a Single Center
Objective: To evaluate biological and environmental exposure to cyclophosphamide in nurses at a single institution. Methods: Biological exposure to cyclophosphamide in nurses administering cyclophosphamide compared with two control groups: nononcology nurses not administering cyclophosphamide and community members without recent hospital exposure. Environmental exposure to chemotherapy was measured using surface wipes taken from oncology and nononcology areas in the hospital. Results: More than one third of all nurses and no community controls tested positive for urinary cyclophosphamide. Oncology...
Paraoxonase 1 and Its Relationship With Pesticide Biomarkers in Indigenous Mexican Farmworkers
Objective: Biomarkers of pesticide toxicity and paraoxonase 1 (PON1) phenotype and genotypes were evaluated in indigenous Mexican farmworkers exposed mainly to organophosphate (OP) pesticides. Methods: Acetylcholinesterase, butyrylcholinesterase, and PON1 activities—arylesterase and CMPAase activities—were evaluated spectrophotometrically. PON1 55 and 192 polymorphisms were determined by real-time polymerase chain reaction. Hematological parameters were evaluated using a cytometer. Results: Butyrylcholinesterase and arylesterase activities were lower in farmworkers, who also showed...
Exposition des travailleurs agricoles aux pesticides
L'Anses publie un rapport bibliographique et lance un appel à contributions Différentes études épidémiologiques réalisées auprès de populations du secteur agricole mettent en évidence une relation significative entre les expositions à certains pesticides et certaines pathologies. L'Anses s'est donc autosaisie en 2011 afin d'identifier, évaluer et caractériser les expositions des travailleurs agricoles aux pesticides, ceci en vue de proposer des actions permettant de les réduire. L'Agence...

Psychoactive substance use by truck drivers
A systematic review The aim of this study was to summarise the scientific evidence on the prevalence of psychoactive substance use and on the factors associated with their intake among truck drivers. A systematic review was performed in the databases PubMed, Scientific Electronic Library Online, Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences, and Cochrane and 36 cross-sectional studies were identified with quantitative results about the use of psychoactive substances by truck drivers. Out of these, 28 were carried out in countries with large land areas and 23 obtained their information through self...
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...
