A health hazard evaluation determination performed at the Challenge Reforestation tree farm (SIC-0821) facility revealed that the Thiram levels in the breathing zone of tree planters, during the actual planting of Thiram treated trees, were lower than the levels prescribed by the prevailing standards. Medical examination of tree planters showed the planters who had been working with Thiram had a higher Thiram blood concentration than those planters with no prior Thiram exposure.
