Summary

Industrial Toxicology as a scientific discipline and management system. Compounds dangerous for human health and their impacts: system toxicity, cancerogenity, mutageneicity, reproduction toxicity, teratogenity, corrosivity, irritant properties, environmental toxicity and other effects (endocrine disruptors, allergens, sensibilitation). Dose - response dependens, limits of dangerous compouns in working and living environment, risk assessment, information sources concerning industrially used chemicals
