SOLID AEROSOL– SOURCE OF OCCUPATIONAL DISEASES

  • 1Department of Safety and Production Quality of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Technical University in Kosice, Kosice, SK

Abstract

Measurements of solid aerosol concentrations are important tools to monitor air conditions at the workplace. In particular, the requirement for the workplace air quality management is necessary to prevent health damage and occupational diseases in exposed jobs. In this case, exceeded limit values for the concentration of solid aerosols were measured for all exposed workers. If such concentrations persist, workers’ health may be at risk and occupational diseases may occur after prolonged exposure.
