Occupational Hazards

As per available reports about 34 Relevant journals, 23 Conferences, 22 Workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to breathing disorder and about 2200 articles are being published on Occupational Hazards.

Hazard is generally anything that can hurt you or make you ill. You deal with hazards in your life every day walking across busy streets, driving and playing sports. Generally, you don't worry too much about these situations. Why? Because you've learned from an early age how to deal with everyday hazards. You've learned from your own experiences, and you've been trained by parents, teachers and coaches. Municipalities install traffic lights and pedestrian crossings, car manufacturers install safety equipment.

Scope and Importance:

You might have taken driver's training and you probably wear protective gear playing sports

The first step to protecting yourself is being able to recognize hazards in the work you're assigned and in the conditions you're working in. There are four main types of hazards:

Physical hazards are the most common and will be present in most workplaces at one time or another. They include unsafe conditions that can cause injury, illness and death.

Examples of physical hazards include:

  1. Electrical hazards: frayed cords, missing ground pins, improper wiring
  2. Unguarded machinery and moving machinery parts: guards removed or moving parts that a worker can accidentally touch
  3. Constant loud noise
  4. High exposure to sunlight/ultraviolet rays, heat or cold
  5. Working from heights, including ladders, scaffolds, roofs, or any raised work area
  6. Working with mobile equipment such as fork lifts
  7. Spills on floors or tripping hazards, such as blocked aisle or cords running across the floor.

Biological hazards come from working with animals, people or infectious plant materials. Work in day care, hospitals, hotel laundry and room cleaning, laboratories, veterinary offices and nursing homes may expose you to biological hazards.

The types of things you may be exposed to include:

  • Blood or other body fluids
  • Fungi
  • Bacteria and viruses
  • Plants
  • Insect bites
  • Animal and bird droppings

Ergonomic hazards occur when the type of work, body position and working conditions put strain on your body. They are the hardest to spot since you don't always immediately notice the strain on your body or the harm these hazards pose. Short-term exposure may result in "sore muscles" the next day or in the days following exposure, but long term exposure can result in serious long-term injuries.

Ergonomic hazards include:

  • Poor lighting
  • Improperly adjusted workstations and chairs
  • Frequent lifting
  • Poor posture
  • Awkward movements, especially if they are repetitive
  • Repeating the same movements over and over
  • Having to use too much force, especially if you have to do it frequently.

Chemical hazards are present when a worker is exposed to any chemical preparation in the workplace in any form (solid, liquid or gas). Some are safer than others, but to some workers who are more sensitive to chemicals, even common solutions can cause illness, skin irritation or breathing problems.

Beware of:

  • Liquids like cleaning products, paints, acids, solvents especially chemicals in an unlabeled container (warning sign!)
  • Vapors and fumes, for instance those that come from welding or exposure to solvents
  • Gases like acetylene, propane, carbon monoxide and helium
  • Flammable materials like gasoline, solvents and explosive chemicals.

Market Analysis:

This industry has a low level of capital intensity. IBIS World estimates that for every dollar spent on wages, only $0.02 is spent on capital. The Occupational Health and Workplace Safety Services industry is highly labor intensive. Wages comprise the largest proportion of industry revenue, reflecting the high level of education and training required for occupational safety specialists
