Airborne Hazards

Airborne hazards in the context of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) refer to contaminants or substances present in the air that can pose risks to workers’ health when inhaled. These hazards include airborne particles, gases, vapors, fumes, and biological agents present in various work environments. Exposure to such hazards can lead to respiratory issues, allergic reactions, or more severe health conditions, depending on the nature and concentration of the airborne substances. OHS protocols emphasize the assessment and control of these hazards through measures such as proper ventilation, the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) like respirators, regular air quality monitoring, and implementing procedures to limit exposure to harmful airborne substances in the workplace.
