Human Exposures to Pesticides: A 1979-1980 Report of the Wisconsin Division of Health

  • Weiss, Harold B.


Surveillance and reporting of acute human health effects resulting from pesticide exposures is difficult from both a medical and administrative perspective. This report describes an evolving system of collecting and organizing pesticide incident reports in Wisconsin and presents information based on a decade of Worker's Compensation data and 1979-1980 pesticide incident reports from the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. There is much room for improvement in both the quantity and quality of the data pertaining to acute pesticide exposure incidents.
