Abstract
Evaluation of health hazard for migrant farmers from exposure to organic phosphate insecticides, such as parathion (56382) and diazinon (333415). Data are given for cholinesterase (9001085) levels of affected persons, symptoms, and details of dermatitis resulting from the insecticides and allergic reactions from celery juice and sunlight. Recommendations include monitoring of pre- exposure cholinesterase levels, checking of red blood cell or plasma decrease, provision of protective equipment and facilities for maintaining good personal hygiene, and informing farmers of safety measures.
