Abstract
Regardless of how specifically the measures for protection of workers from pesticide exposure may be stated for any particular situation, people who work with such compounds must realize that there is some element of risk involved. Accidents occur, even among workers who are careful. The importance of dermal and respiratory exposure certainly warrants the use of some type of protective gear. The article also emphasizes that improvements in protective equipment are needed to bring about better protection of workers.
