Progress in epidemiological research concerning detection of carcinogens in the occupational environment is dependent upon the improvement of methods for the assessment of occupational exposures. A workshop including specialists in epidemiology, industrial hygiene and biology was held in Paris in 1988. The principal themes examined included the assessment of exposures based on job titles, including job exposure matrices: the use of specialized questionnaires and the measurement of exposures in industrial settings, including biological indicators. This volume includes the papers presented at the workshop. These concerned biological methods for monitoring exposure to genotoxic chemicals, epidemiological aspects of evaluation of occupational cancer risk factors, and collection of exposure data following identification of high risk job-categories in a nationwide surveillance system.
