Woodworking industry

Woodworking industry (occupational health). For woodworking industry includes enterprises for the production of plywood, chipboard, furniture and millwork.
The main production of harm in the production of plywood are high temperature and humidity in steam chambers, dryers and presses the allocation in the air vapors of formaldehyde at furnace for drying adhesive layer and the presses (using urea-formaldehyde glues). In the production of chipboard major hazard - noise when the crushing of wood, organic emissions of formaldehyde at hot pressing and wood dust, resin impregnated with glue, forming units.
Occupational hazards in the production of furniture - adverse microclimatic conditions in drying departments, the allocation in the air formaldehyde vapors when gluing and veneering and aerosols varnishes and vapors of solvents during finishing. Joinery shops of the main dangers are mechanical injury in the works for woodworking machines, especially on circular saws, as well as the dust concentration in the air when grinding. As a result of contact with synthetic glue workers can develop a professional skin: dermatitis (see) and eczema (see).
Basic preventive measures to prevent occupational hazards: effective ventilation, noise control, observance of measures on labour protection and safety. All people working with synthetic glue and other harmful sites are subject to periodic (1 per year) medical examinations. When hiring held preliminary check-UPS.
