All kinds of activities, be it artisan or industrial, during the course of manufacture produce micro polluttants diffused in the air in working environments. Some pollutants could be diffused in working environments even where there is no specific manufacturing or processing (warehouses, offices). If there is the presence of a particular source of raw materials extremely evaporative or contained in manufactured articles. The measure of the level of exposition to workers to air diffused pollutant is a fondamental part often negleated. The valutation of risk present in work environments is provided by Legislative Decree 81/2008. The only document assessment is in fact insufficient because the law requires that, where a significant risk to the safety of workers is found, several requirements including the provision of PPE, the introduction of local exhaust ventilation or closed loop, the search for raw materials less dangerous training and specific information of employees and regular monitoring of the levels of exposure to chemicals and carcinogens are needed.
The presence of chemical pollution in the work environment can become, depending on the concentration reached by pollutants in the air breathed by workers, a significant risk to exposed personnel.
The workers, in fact, are likely:
