Introduction: Occupational Dermal exposure to Antineoplastic Drugs is the one of the most important routes in Healthcare staffs. Several antineoplastic drugs have been classified as carcinogens by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Regards to this issue investigation on Dermal exposure to Antineplastic Drugs in healthcare staffs is nessessary.
Method: In this Descriptive and correlational study, the use of DREAM method for Determination Dermal exposure in chemotherapy personnel was investigated in Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences and Health Services. By Assessment of probability and intensity Emisson exposure, Deposition exposour and transfer exposure for all of body parts calculated. Then potential and actual exposure calculated and Chemotherapy divisions Classificated based on they're DREAM average score, forthermore we assessment correlation between various dermal exposure scores and occupational and demographical parameters.
Results: Maximum deposition dermal exposure (Mean=1.409 , SE=0.127) was for the Baghaeepour division staffs. Maximum Transfer dermal exposure (Mean=3.500 , SE=0) was for the Imam Hassan division staffs and Maximum Emmission dermal exposure(Mean=0.980 , SE=0.114) was for the Internal-1 division staffs.  Respectively the Maximum potential and actual dermal exposure calculated (Mean= 5.133 , SE= 0)  was for the Imam Hassan division staffs  and (Mean= 1.164 , SE= 0.152) )  was for the Internal-1 division staffs.
Conclusion: Depending on findings although DREAM is a time-consuming and has somewhat complicated calculations to be used as an daily assessment tool, It can be used as an effective tool For initial assessment of the skin exposure in working environments.
