Toxicological and carcinogenic health hazards in the workplace.
J Environ Pathol Toxicol 1979 May/Jun; 2(5):1-370
Proceedings of the 1978 First Annual NIOSH Scientific Symposium on toxicological and carcinogenic health hazards in the workplace held in Cincinnati, Ohio are presented. Topics of investigation included: respiratory diseases related to exposures in the workplace; effect of physical and behavioral agents on worker health and performance; effects of exposure to potential carcinogenic and other toxic agents; health effects related to specific industrial groups; and advances in measurement and control procedures and processes. Agents discussed include: methylene (bis(p- phenylisocyanate) (101688), carbon-monoxide (630080), methylene- chloride (75092), methyl n-butyl-ketone (591786), methyl-n-amyl ketone (110430), 4,4-methylenebis(o-chloroaniline) (101144), ethylene oxide (75218), nitrous-oxide (10024972), halothane (151677), nitromethane (75525), 2-nitropropane (79469), benzene (71432), non-asbestiform talc (14807966), polyvinyl-chloride (9002862), and diethanol-N-nitrosamine (1116547).
