The right management of the risks linked to the health and safety in the workplaces is an current topic which involves employees, companies and institutions. The 2018-19 Healthy Workplace European Campaign is focused on the presence of dangerous substances and it wants to spreads a prevention culture about the health and safety in the working and living places.
The employees are daily exposed to the threats of toxic substances through inhalation, skin penetration or ingestion which can cause negative effect on health, including:
– Respiratory diseases (e.g asthma, rhinitis,..)
– Damage to internal organs, nervous system included
– Skin Irritation and diseases
