Standard Guide for Assessing the Health Hazard of Pesticides to Applicators and Others with Potential Exposure
Publication date
65.100.01 Pesticides and other agrochemicals in general
Summary :

1.1 This guide covers a stepwise process for using information concerning biological, chemical, physical, and toxicological properties of a pesticide or other chemical(
s), or of a formulation to identify adverse effects that may occur to pesticide applicators or others with potential exposure.

1.2 The health hazard assessment process is complex and requires decisions at a number of points; thus, the validity of the assessment depends on the soundness of those decisions, as well as the soundness of the information used. All decisions should be based on carefully documented analyses so that an appropriate assessment can be completed, at the least cost, which is consistent with scientific validity.

1.3 This guide assumes that the reader is knowledgeable in animal toxicology and related pertinent areas, and relies heavily on the judgment of the evaluator, particularly in the area of chronic hazards.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
