Occupational Hygiene Awareness
Increasing industrial activity world-wide means that there are more people exposed to chemical and physical agents such as dusts, solvents and noise with the potential to cause work related diseases such as silicosis, cancer and noise induced hearing loss. New technologies also pose new risks.
