Neurootological test profiles in workers with noisy and chemical environments

Abstract

Our modern public health prevision scheme deals with the protection of workers’ health. This is necessary to reduce or eliminate hazards due to work. Industrial accidents and unsafe working conditions may result in health disturbances, acute or chronic illnesses. Chemical, as well as physical hazards amongst external sources lead to untoward changes in health. Hazards may also result from the interaction between the worker and the non-well organized working place and environment. These mechanisms are also called ergonomic hazards. They may cause physiological or psychological stress. Common physical hazards include ambient heat, burns, noise, vibration, sudden pressure changes and others mostly at metal workers. Chemical hazards can arise due to the presence of poisonous or irritating gases, vapours from paints, lubricants or chemical solvents, gluing and sticking materials, etc. Industrial safety engineers attempt to eliminate hazards at their source to reduce their intensity. If this is impossible workers are required to wear protective equipment. The profiles of metal-workers and painters are compared in this study.
