Abstract

This summary provides a synopsis of talks included in a symposium entitled " Current Needs and Future Directions of Occupational Safety and Heath in a Globalized World". The purpose of the symposium was to (1) highlight national and international agencies with occupational health related activities; (2) address electronic (e-)waste issues in developing countries where exposures are secondary to the handling and scavenging of scrap; and (3) discuss the effects of hazardous materials, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) and tobacco smoke on child intelligence quotient (IQ) in developing countries.
