[EXTERNAL] An Original Article from Annals of Work Exposure and Health, 2020, 1-14
In this article, we describe exposure patterns among a group of former employees of the Baie Verte chrysotile asbestos mine/mill. We also describe the methods used for reconstructing historical exposures and the development of a job exposure matrix (JEM) for this group of workers taking into account changes in job tasks, control measures, and process changes. Finally, we describe the statistical techniques used to evaluate the quality of the data used to develop the exposure estimates.
