Worker Re-entry

Agrochemex International has a dedicated team responsible for conducting worker re-entry studies throughout Europe and further afield. Worker re-entry studies are conducted to establish safe re-entry intervals for workers in a multitude of different scenarios from outdoor field activities (e.g. pruning/thinning of apple orchards) to greenhouse activities (e.g. picking/bundling flowers, etc).

The sampling techniques for worker re-entry are similar to the passive dosimetry techniques used for operator exposure studies.
