For example, information from animal studies is extrapolated to predict a response in humans. Sometimes, it is difficult to elicit the same response in humans if the selected species is not a suitable model for determining that effect. From a practical standpoint, rodents have routinely been used in initial toxicological investigations to obtain some general toxicity information. Here, large numbers of animals used to screen chemicals before more detailed studies are conducted on larger mammals, for example, dogs and monkeys, for determining the desired effect.

Once a substance is absorbed from the GI tract, it must pass through the mucosa, submucosa, circular muscle layer, long muscle layer, and serosa before it enters the bloodstream. The major function of the GI system is to supply the body with the necessary nutrients and water for normal function. Some substances are accidentally ingested in the workplace from various contamination Eating in working areas is a classic means of ingesting hazardous materials. Some materials be ingested after inhalation as well.

A result, the TLV was reduced from 100 ppm to 50 ppm (present TLV for CO is 25 ppm). Skin patch tests are also conducted on humans after adequate animal testing has been completed. For example, chemicals that may have a sensitizing capability in guinea pigs also be tested for skin sensitization in human subjects. Other primary irritants are tested in the same manner under carefully controlled conditions. Another type of human evaluation of occupational exposures to hazardous substances is the epidemiological study.
