Workers in the pulp and paper industry are exposed to different substances, such as hydrogen sulfide and other reduced sulfur compounds, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, sulfur dioxide, terpenes, and paper dust. The exposure level depends on the process, i.e., sulfite, sulfate, groundwood, bleachery, or paper production. Exposure to high levels of paper dust, causes impaired lung function.
Pulp & Paper facilities are inherently prone to fires and explosions mainly due to the accumulation of dust. Preventing and controlling the accumulation of dust through good housekeeping is a key means of controlling fire and explosion hazards.
