Reducing the Risk of Polymer Dust Exposure
Manufacturers and researchers have made great strides in creating new polymers in recent years. These new products—and constant improvements to existing ones—mean polymers will be widely used in the foreseeable future.
Working with polymers is much safer than working with some of their alternatives (metals, for example), but the practice still presents certain dangers. It is important for manufacturers to address these workplace hazards in order to protect workers as well as to comply with safety regulations.
