Occupational Health and Safety Hazards

This course helps the reader recognize potential health hazards that may exist in specific operations and industries. After the removal of major soils and oils by degreasing, metal parts are often treated in acid and alkaline baths to condition the parts for electroplating or other finishes.

 

The principal hazard in this series of operations is exposure to acid and alkaline mist released by heating, air agitation, gassing from electrolytic operation, or cross‐contamination between tanks.

 

For many decades the principal application of degreasing technology has been in the metalworking industry for the removal of machining oils, grease, drawing oils, chips, and other soils from metal parts.

 

The course describes the significant occupational health problems associated with cold and vapor‐phase degreasing processes. The grinding, polishing, and buffing operations are grouped together for discussion because they all involve controlled use of bonded abrasives for metal finishing operations.

 

The course covers the non-precision applications of these techniques.

At the end of this course, the student will be able to:

  1. Identify the occupational health and safety hazards in workplace
  2. Explain the effects of chemicals such as organic solvents.
  3. Discuss the difference between ionizing and non-Ionizing radiations.
  4. Mention the two main effects of noise.
  5. Describe the occupational exposure to biohazards.
  6. Give examples of some ergonomic hazards
  7. And many more.
