Abstract
The Behavioral Toxicology Workshop for Early Detection of Occupational Hazards, was held in Cincinnati, Ohio, June 24-29, 1973, under the sponsorship of NIOSH and the University of Cincinnati, College of Community Services. The Workshop was concerned with methods for assessing the adequacy of occupational health standards and for quantifying and evaluating functional impairments in the worker based on behavioral performance measures and neurophysiological changes, the application of behavioral/neurophysiological indicators for the monitoring and early detection potential of occupational health and safety problems, and the ultimate establishment of safety standards based on the preservation of behavioral functions and worker capabilities. The main topics covered include: exposure to solvents, especially carbon-disulfide (75150) and trichloroethylene (79016); exposure to organophosphate pesticides; exposure to metals, especially inorganic mercury (7439976), organomercury compounds, and lead (7439921); exposure to toxic gases, irritants, odors, alcohol, and effects of drug interactions. Also included were demonstrations of behavioral toxicology.
