How can unsafe working conditions damage my health?
Many factories have unsafe working conditions, such as:
- closed and locked doors and windows, which make it impossible for workers to get out during emergencies, and which keep air from flowing freely.
- exposure to toxins, such as chemicals and radiation, without protective barriers or clothing.
- unsafe equipment.
- fire hazards, like loose electrical wires, or chemicals or vapors that burn easily.
- no safe water, toilets or latrines, or rest breaks.
