Plastics are synthetic polymers that are made up of long chains of repeating molecular units called monomers.  Monomers are the building blocks of polymers. Monomers such as vinyl chloride, styrene, and acrylonitrile are produced by the petrochemical industry through crude oil distillation at refineries.

These raw materials are then sent to resin producers where monomers are polymerized into final polymer products such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS), and acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS).   After the addition of additives such as plasticizers and fire retardants, resins are then shipped to plastics manufacturers in the form of powders, liquids or pellets where they are transformed into a whole host of plastics products

The plastics processing work environment is potentially contaminated by residual monomers, polymers, and various additives including plasticizers, stabilizers, pigments/colourants, flame retardants, activators, lubricants and fillers.  There also may be contamination from various solvents, paints and finishing agents used in the decorative process
