Exposure to noise in the workplace can cause noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). Hearing damage can be caused by regular exposure to prolonged loud noise over the working day or a single extremely loud impulsive noise event.
Exposure to dust in the workplace can be highly dangerous on a number of levels. Concentrated clouds of dust can be potentially combustible whereas dispersed dust levels can be as dangerous, causing dust-related illnesses.
Exposure to vibration via the hand can cause a series of permanent (but preventable) conditions which damage the nerves, blood vessels or joints of the hand, wrist and arm. These conditions are known as Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS). HAVS is associated with the regular use of hand-held tools that produce significant vibration exposure.
