Effect of the reduction of skin contamination on the internal dose of creosote workers exposed to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
Ten creosote-exposed workers of a wood impregnation plant participated in this study, which took place in two consecutive weeks on a Monday, after a weekend off.
On one of the two days each worker wore Tyvek coveralls underneath his normal workclothes.
Dermal contamination measurements (pyrene on exposure pads) and biological monitoring (urinary 1-OH-pyrene) were performed to measure the reduction of both the skin contamination and the internal dose.
The total pyrene skin contamination of workers not wearing coveralls ranged between 47 and 1510 mug.d-1 (0.2-7.5 mumol.d-1).
