What are the impacts on human health during the rubber compounding process
The impact of rubber compounding on human health is mainly manifested in the following aspects:
Respiratory irritation: The irritating substances such as exhaust gas and dust generated during the rubber compounding process, if inhaled by the human body, can irritate the respiratory mucosa and cause symptoms such as cough and chest tightness.
Allergic reactions: Some people may experience allergic reactions to certain components in rubber, such as skin itching, redness, and swelling. In severe cases, symptoms such as difficulty breathing may occur.
Occupational hazards: Engaging in rubber compounding work for a long time may lead to occupational diseases such as pneumoconiosis and respiratory diseases. These diseases can have serious impacts on human health.
In order to reduce the impact of rubber compounding on the human body, a series of measures need to be taken, such as strengthening ventilation, wearing protective equipment, and conducting regular physical examinations. At the same time, it is also necessary to strengthen supervision and management to ensure the safety and hygiene of the workplace.
