Malathion: Occupational Exposure and Risk Assessment for the Interim Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED) Document.
In this document, HED presents its review of the potential human health risks from occupational exposure to malathion. Occupational exposure may result from malathion agricultural uses (i.e., multiple food-use crops) and non-agricultural uses (e.g., outdoor residential vegetable gardens, home orchards, ornamentals and perimeter house treatments, and wide-area mosquito treatment). Exposure may occur to both handlers and postapplication workers who enter and conduct activities in treated use sites.
