Ethylene oxide by R Liteplo( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 2003 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethylene oxide is a colorless, highly reactive gas at room temperature and pressure. Almost all of ethylene oxide produced is used in the manufacture of ethylene glycol, but some amount is used as a sterilant for health care materials and other heat-sensitive products. Ethylene oxide is an alkylating agent and forms protein and DNA adducts. Based on studies in animals, cancer is considered the critical end-point for effects of ethylene oxide on human health for long-term exposure of the general population.--Publisher's description

Principles for evaluating health risks to reproduction associated with exposure to chemicals by Paul M. D Foster( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Principles of characterizing and applying human exposure models by International Program on Chemical Safety( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this manual is to provide guidance to risk assessors on the use of quantitative toxicokinetic and toxicodynamic data to address interspecies and interindividual differences in dose and concentration-response assessment. Section 1 focuses on the relevance of this guidance in the context of the broader risk assessment paradigm and other initiatives of the International Program on Chemical Safety (IPCS) project on the Harmonization of Approaches to the Assessment of Risk from Exposure to Chemicals. Technical background material is presented in section 2, followed by generic guidance for the development of chemical-specific adjustment factors in section 3 and accompanying summary figures. Illustrative case-studies are included in an Appendix, and a glossary of terms is also provided.--Publisher's description
Skin sensitization in chemical risk assessment by International Program on Chemical Safety( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication presents the conclusions of an IPCS Workshop on Skin Sensitization in Chemical Risk Assessment. The workshop focused on the question of methods for dose-response assessment, to evaluate the relative ability of a chemical to induce sensitization in the skin, and hence inform risk assessment for humans. In addition this publication includes a series of short articles on this topic by leading experts in the field. The conclusions of the workshop cover such aspects as the nature and utility for risk assessment of the data produced by non-animal test methods (such as quantitative structure-activity relationships), in vitro testing approaches, animal test methods, and epidemiological studies. While traditional animal test methods used for identification and regulation of skin sensitizers have focused on determining whether or not a substance is a sensitizer, this report describes the use of tests for deriving more informative potency information.--Publisher's description
Principles for modelling dose-response for the risk assessment of chemicals by WHO Task Group on Environmental Health Criteria on Principles for Modelling Dose-Response for the Risk Assessment of Chemicals( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is part of the ongoing review of the underlying scientific bases for decision-making in chemical risk assessment by International Program on Chemical Safety. It involves specific consideration of the area of dose-response assessment in the evaluation of information from toxicological studies in animals and from human clinical and epidemiological studies. It covers toxicants with threshold effects and those for which there may be no practical threshold, such as substances that are genotoxic and carcinogenic. The discussions are concerned with that subset of cause-effect relationships commonly referred to as dose-response models, which are typically used to characterize the biological effects of intentional (e.g. drugs and nutrients) and unintentional (e.g. contaminants) exposure to chemicals. This report is intended primarily to provide descriptive guidance for risk assessors in using dose-response modeling in hazard characterization. It will also provide mathematical modelers with an appreciation of issues to be considered when modeling in the context of the risk assessment process. Risk managers will be able to obtain a general understanding of the applications and limitations of dose-response modeling. For both risk assessors and risk managers, some considerations for communicating the results of risk assessments that use dose-response modeling are presented.--Publisher's description
2-butenal by J Kielhorn( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2-Butenal (also known as crotonaldehyde) is an ab-unsaturated aldehyde and consequently a very reactive compound. It is a chemical intermediate used chiefly in the manufacture of sorbates, solvents, and, to a lesser extent, pharmaceutical products and aroma chemicals. This publication studies the pharmacokinetics, environmental exposure, chemical toxicology and carcinogenicity of 2-butenal. However, to enable an understanding and evaluation of this aldehyde in the context of environmental health, other aldehydes, such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and acrolein, are mentioned for comparison.--Publisher's description
Dermal absorption by J Kielhorn( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new volume in the Environmental Health Criteria Series presents an overview of dermal absorption and its consideration in the risk assessment of chemicals. It describes the methods available to assess dermal absorption, the significance of skin as a route of exposure and the interpretation of results of dermal absorption studies for risk assessment. In addition, it presents and discusses current topics of interest in the field of dermal absorption. This book will be useful to biology and toxicology scientists and researchers, as well as to regulatory authorities and the chemical industry
Edward Phelan and the ILO : the life and views of an international social actor by E. J Phelan( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a remarkable portrait of Edward J. Phelan (1888-1967), a man who dedicated his life to social justice and whose views and actions guided the work of the ILO for decades. One of a small group of people who mapped out the design of the ILO in the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 and one of the principal authors of the ILO Constitution, Phelan became the ILO's fourth Director-General in 1941 until his retirement in 1948. Phelan's personal memoirs, long unpublished, are brought together in one volume along with a biographical essay by labour historian Emmet O'Connor, texts by Brian Cowen TD, Seán Lemass TD and former ILO Director-General Wilfred Jenks, and a selection of Phelan's lesser known writings on the ILO's later development, offering a unique perspective on key episodes in the history of the ILO

Producer price index manual : theory and practice by International Labour Organisation( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The producer price index (PPI) measures the rate at which the prices of producer goods and services are changing overtime. It is a key statistic for economic and business decision making and inflation monitoring. The Producer Price Index Manual: Theory and Practice provides clear, up-to-date guidance on the concepts, uses, methods, and economic theory of the PPI, including information on classifications, sources, compilation techniques, and analytical uses of the PPI. The Manual supersedes the previous international guidance on PPIs (available in the Manual on Producers' Price Indices for Industrial Goods, published by the United Nations Statistics Division in 1979). The Manual's conceptual framework derives from the System of National Accounts1993 and recent developments in index number theory. Preparation of the Manual was undertaken by the Intersecretariat Working Group on Price Statistics through a technical expert group chaired by the IMF and involving representatives from the ILO, the OECD, the UN Economic Commission for Europe, the World Bank, national statistical offices, and academic institutions

World of work report 2010 : from on crisis to the next? by International Institute for Labour Studies( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Economic recovery from the crisis triggered by the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008 remains both weak and uneven across countries. The result is persistently high unemployment in some countries, and growing job precariousness almost everywhere. In the countries where the crisis originated, the financial systen remains dysfunctional, thereby affecting enterprise investment and further delaying a job recovery."--Back cover
Bangladesh : seeking better employment conditions for better socioeconomic outcomes by International Labour Organisation( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study on Bangladesh, part of the on-going series entitled Studies on Growth with Equity, highlights that many of these migrant workers are often confronted with difficult employment conditions abroad and their remittances have not translated into higher investment - which has further dampened productivity gains and formal job creation at home
