World Day for Safety and Health at Work: Promoting Clean and Green Production to Safeguard Health and Safety

Globally, the human and economic toll of workplace accidents and illnesses is staggering. Statistics indicate that the global GDP loss resulting from work-related deaths, injuries, and illnesses is approximately 20 times higher than the total official development assistance. In 2001, the International Labor Organization (ILO) officially designated April 28 as the "World Day for Safety and Health at Work," establishing it as a United Nations recognized observance. The ILO firmly believes that occupational accidents and diseases are both preventable and should be prevented, emphasizing the necessity for action at all levels – from national governments to individual enterprises worldwide – to achieve this goal.

Safety Threats in the Production Environment

Dust Explosions: In various industries including metalworking, wood and paper processing, textiles, rubber and plastic manufacturing, metallurgy, non-ferrous metals, building materials, coal powder preparation, and more, dust is generated during production processes. If not handled properly, this dust can mix with air in confined spaces to form a dust cloud, which can easily ignite and explode under the presence of an ignition source. Dust explosions are highly hazardous, releasing substantial energy and causing severe destruction. Incomplete combustion during these explosions results in combustion gases laden with toxic substances, posing a high risk of poisoning to personnel. They are prone to secondary explosions or even multiple consecutive blasts, leading to significant casualties.

Occupational Disease Hazards in the Production Environment

Dust Hazards: The harm caused by industrial dust to human health depends on its chemical composition and concentration in the air. Higher concentrations and smaller dust particles pose greater risks. Prolonged exposure can lead to conditions such as rhinitis, pharyngitis, pneumoconiosis, pneumonia, and even lung cancer.

Oil Mist Hazards: Metalworking fluid oil mists contain numerous harmful substances, including heavy metals, hydrogen sulfide, benzene, formaldehyde, among others. Long-term exposure can cause skin itching, redness, rashes, and allergic reactions; when oil mists enter the eyes, they can cause irritation, pain, infection, potentially leading to conjunctivitis and blindness. Inhalation may result in throat pain, coughing, wheezing, and bronchitis.

Cooking Oil Fume Hazards: Chronic exposure to cooking fumes can lead to serious lung diseases like chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and lung cancer. Harmful compounds in the fumes can enter the bloodstream, contributing to cardiovascular issues such as hypertension, heart disease, and stroke.

Organic Solvent Vapor Hazards: Characterized as colorless and highly irritating, organic solvent vapors spread in the atmosphere with airflow. Excessive levels of these vapors in the air can cause permanent damage to the respiratory system, circulatory system, liver, and other organs, leading to severe health implications.

Furthermore, high temperatures, high pressure, high humidity, noise, vibrations, and various forms of radiation can induce health problems that may endanger life and wellbeing.
