A Rubber Worker's Guide to Occupational Health

Year Published:  1984  
Resource Type:  Book

Abstract:  This booklet describes the hazards to be found in ten typical work areas in a rubber plant, and lists 25 common chemical hazards. It includes a step-by-step guide to finding information on chemical hazards. It looks at noise, heat, and stress hazards in the rubber industry and how workers can protect themselves from them. Ventilation and personal protective equipment to prevent exposure to chemical hazards are described.

Studies of the industry have shown that many diseases, including some forms of cancer, are more common among rubber workers than the general population.
