Popis

Legislation obliges employers to ensure that all employees carrying out activities with hazardous substances recieve general advice on occupational safety and health and on toxicology. The aim of the document and presentation is to provide information about the harmful effects of dust, the prevention of respiratory diseases and appropriate workplace design. To support employers in fulfilling their obligations, the Thematic Initiatives Circle Healthy Lungs has developed a presentation that can be used as a basis for giving workers advice. The presentation consists of 10 slides with explanatory text. The presentation lasts about 10–15 minutes.
