dc.description.abstract Pesticides use is related to risk of occupational intoxication during their production and application. The aim of the current publication is to present a case of a good occupational health practice in an enterprise involved in fi eld application of pesticides. The health status of employees applying pesticides was investigated. Serum concentrations of liver enzymes and cholinesterase were determined. The results showed that because of the daily instructions of the employees and adequately chosen personal protective equipment, adverse health effects were not registered among the employees. The serum concentrations of the investigated indices (ASAT, ALAT and cholinesterase) were in the reference range in all samples. Health management of occupational intoxications is based on the good knowledge about the activities and safety use of pesticides, as well as the adequate personal equipment provided by the employers. en_US
