Occupational Toxicology deals with chemicals in the workplace and introduces the reader to the basic aspects of the science of toxicology that underpin the application of toxicological information to the workplace. The book contains chapters on the most important workplace exposures such as metals, pesticides, solvents, plastics, gases, and particulate matter. Important fields interfacing with occupational toxicology - hygiene, epidemiology and occupational medicine - are covered to assist the reader in understanding the necessity of cross-discipline considerations in dealing with workplace exposures.The book informs the reader as to the types of toxicity seen in the workplace environment and the organs likely to be affected. The lung and the skin are given individual attention as these are important sites of injury/disease caused by exposure to chemicals. As the cancer-related effects of chemicals continue to be of concern, genotoxicity and cancer are also singled out for particular attention. The sometimes confused variety of tests for genotoxicity are comprehensively covered.
