Toxicology in Seafaring — Dangerous Goods

  • L. M. Shafran


Serving as the basis for the development of shipboard toxicology for the last two decades has been the increasing importance of chemical factors in relation to a) the characteristics of work and rest of seagoing personnel of modern ships of all types and descriptions, and b) environmental pollution. Shipboard toxicology is part of preventive toxicology, dealing with the interreaction between the organism and chemical factors under specific conditions of shipboard environment (Tiunov and Savateev [19]).
