Subject background

The field of occupational toxicology covers the use of chemicals in workplace settings and includes the study of both raw materials and process emissions as possible hazards to human health. Work-related exposures are studied by use of inhalation and skin exposure monitoring as well as biomarkers of exposure, susceptibility and effect, usually as part of epidemiological exposures. Results of such studies, and also from experimental exposure studies, contribute to the setting of workplace standards to prevent work-related intoxications and occupational disease.
