Occupational Toxicology

The science of toxicology has many applications. One of these relates to exposure of people to noxious or hazardous agents during the course of their work. 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.

Modeling of dose-response relationships will be used to derive a safe level for workers using data from small scale experimental (animal or volunteer) studies. A cursory glance at the Group 1 carcinogen list of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) should be evidence enough from this perspective. The epidemic of asbestos-related cancer that continues in some countries.
