Description

This poster is one of eight sector-specific posters that were developed for the SLIC campaign 'chemicalscampaign.eu' in 2010. It highlights the risks that bakery workers face. The slogan of the campaign was 'Hazardous substances: be aware, assess and protect'. The messages intend to attract the attention of both the employer and workers who might be exposed to flour dust when working in a bakery. One of the key messages is that flour dust causes asthma, so it is important to reduce or prevent the creation of flour dust.
