Sugar industry: chemical exposure in sugar production

Following a crisis period between 2017 and 2020 due to a change in regulations, the European sugar market is currently experiencing significant growth of almost 50%. As a result, both the production and consumption of sugar are increasing. Sugar is a foodstuff used by individuals as well as by industries for production purposes. The latter represent a large part of the sugar industry's customer portfolio.

Exposure to chemical risks in the meat industry

The meat industry comprises all of the agri-food industrial activities specialising in the processing of farm animals for human consumption. Slaughterhouses perform the second stage of livestock processing, i.e. slaughtering the animals and preparing the carcasses.

Chemical risks in pharmaceutical industry

Pharmaceutical manufacturing is a complex process that involves the use of a wide range of chemicals, including solvents, reagents, and active ingredients. While these chemicals are essential for producing life-saving medications, they can also pose significant risks to workers if proper safety measures are not in place.

Lithium-ion batteries: why and when do they pose a risk of chemical exposure for people?

In recent years, there has been an increase in the use of motorised personal mobility devices (MPMDs) equipped with a non-combustion engine such as scooters, bicycles, unicycles, hoverboards and similar devices. Like more and more electric vehicles, most MPMDs contain lithium-ion batteries, which are appreciated for their excellent longevity and energy storage efficiency.

Chemical risk in wastewater treatment?

The water treatment is broken down into several stages, where personnel may be exposed to risks at any time, whether physical (risks of falling, slipping), biological (asphyxiation, poisoning by contaminated materials) or chemical (projections, inhalation).

Chemical risks in petrochemical industry

Petrochemistry is a science that can be applied to fundamental human needs, such as health, hygiene, housing and food. Petrochemicals are an essential part of the chemical industry today.

Pictographs in the workplace

The new European reglementation CLP (Classification Labelling Packaging) 1272/2008 integrates the GHS system in Europe, and with it, new pictographs representing chemical hazards.

Chemical risks in automotive industry

The automotive industry is a very wide area from the manufacturing of the pieces of the engine, the body, plastics to the assembly of the car. There is a chemical risk at each stage of production of a car.

Chemical risk in food industry

The food industry produces both finished products for consumption and intermediate products for further processing. It is diverse compared to many other industrial sectors. This diversity can be seen in terms of size and nature of the companies as well as the wide range of raw materials, products and processes. The food industry is subject to very diverse local economic, social and environmental conditions, and varying national legislations.

Chemical risk in paper industry?

The interest of the paper industry market is first of all linked to the complex process required by the production of paper. Two distinct manufacturing operations can be set-up according to the quality of paper needed: mechanical process (mechanical pastes for newsprints and magazines) or chemical process (chemical pastes for writing, impression or packing: sulphite pastes and sulphate pastes or kraft) during which the wood fibres are insulated with chemicals such as bisulfites or sulphates.

Chemical risk in solar energy ?

Photovoltaic refers to the direct conversion of solar radiance into electrical energy thanks to solar cells. Until now, solar cells are generally made of silicon (semiconductor).

Chemical risk in metallurgy?

In order to well define the metallurgy, it is first of all necessary to make the distinction with the mineralurgy, linked to the mining industry

Chemical risk in ?

From the construction of an aircraft to its business concern, there is a very large area. Chemicals are used from the manufacturing of pieces to the aircraft maintenance.
