Behavioral Procedures for Reducing Worker Exposures to Carcinogens.
The University of Kansas :36 pages
The purpose for research into behavioral procedures for reducing worker exposure to carcinogens, the methods used, summary results, and analysis of results are discussed. Familiarization industrial facility visits, involving trips to manufacturers of products from fiberglass reinforced plastics, work procedures, and worker education, training, and motivation are considered. Major research results related to behavioral or work procedure data, data on housekeeping practices, data on air samples for styrene (100425), and data on urinary mandelic-acid concentrations are described. Among various conclusions, the authors note that work procedures and housekeeping practices, selected for their relevance to reducing exposures to workplace hazardous substances, can be readily and dramatically changed in prescribed directions.
