Occupational exposure

Occupational exposure is infection or health risk of workers at their work place due to hazardous chemicals or physical hazardous eg Explosive; flammable (gases, aerosols, liquids, or solids); oxidizer (liquid, solid, or gas); self reactive; pyrophoric (gas, liquid or solid); self-heating; organic peroxide; corrosive to metal etc. e-waste recycling working conditions are very challenging and presented serious hazards to worker health. Formalizing the e-waste processing activities requires developing a framework of sustainable financial and social security for the e-waste workers, including adoption of low-cost, socially acceptable, easy-to-operate, and cleaner technologies that would safeguard the health of the workers and the general public. Exposure to cadmium, mercury, lead and other heavy metals occurs in occupational settings, such as pigment and batteries production, galvanization and recycling of electric tools. Co-exposure to several heavy metals causes genotoxic effects. e-waste recycling is toxic and dangerous to workers' health. Workers use their bare hands to crack open electronics to strip away any parts that can be reused—including chips and valuable metals such as gold, silver, etc. Workers also "cook" circuit boards to remove chips and solders, burn wires and other plastics to liberate metals such as copper; use highly corrosive and dangerous acid baths along the riverbanks to extract gold from the microchips; and sweep printer toner out of cartridges. Children are exposed to the dioxin-laden ash as the e-waste dumping area. The soil has been saturated with lead, chromium, tin. Discarded electronics lie in pools of toxins that leach into the groundwater, making the water undrinkable to the extent that water must be trucked in from elsewhere.

OMICS Group International is a conflation of OMICS Group publishes 400 Open Access journals and International Science & Management conferences and events. Established in 2007 by Dr.Srinubabu with the only purpose making the research on Sciences and technology ‘Open Access’. OMICS Group publishes 400 online open access scholarly journals in all aspects of Science, Engineering, Management and Technology journals. Research Scholars, Students, Libraries, Educational Institutions, Research centers and the industry are main stakeholders that benefitted greatly from this knowledge dissemination. OMICS Group also organizes 300 International conferences annually across the globe. OMICS International organizes International workshops and symposiums, Science Congress, World Summits across the globe where the knowledge exchange among Scientists, Research Scholars, Students, Institutions and Industries. The scientific sessions 'Young Scientist Awards and Poster Competition at OMICS Scientific Conferences offers a platform to the budding scientists and researchers to showcase their novel research. OMICS Group also provides a dynamic platform for companies to exhibit, launch and showcase their unique strengths, products and services.
