Others Factors Affecting Occupational Health

The list of factors which affect the occupational health and that need standard organising, scrutiny, inspection, surveillance and certification is extremely long. In this section attempt has been build to identify these factors in general common industrial environment. Special environment acquiring in mining, railroad, shipyard, marine, long shoring has not been included.

Special equipment and processes in this type of industry will call for specialized care and solutions. It may also be pointed out that all industries require electrical power connections, power cables, switch gears, transformers and at times generators. Protection from leakage shocks, sparks and fire because of electrical use is an important factor in industrial safety and health. Use of standard and certified electrical units and proper earthling are essential basic precautions. Workers that are working in environment where electricity leakage is likely to occur the workers have to be encouraged to use insulated gloves and boots. In electrical circuits the "weak link" in form of fuse is one of most important method of giving protection. Mechanical fuses are provided in boilers to safeguard workers from occupational hazards. Breakable shear pins are employed in rotating mechanical parts to avoid damage and harm to worker.
