Cancer de la vessie et expositions professionnelles aux fluides de coupe
Étude épidémiologique parmi les travailleurs de la sidérurgie en France L'objectif de cette étude est de rechercher s'il existe un risque de cancer de la vessie associé à des expositions professionnelles à des brouillards d'huiles, issus de l'utilisation d'huiles entières ou de fluides aqueux. Une étude cas-témoins a été mise en place au sein d'une cohorte de 22 795 travailleurs de la sidérurgie du Nord - Pas-de-Calais. Les cas de cancer de vessie ont été diagnostiqués...
Consultation on monitoring of water-miscible metalworking fluid (MWF) mists
The aim of this research was to examine metal working fluid (MWF) exposure limits and guidance set by other countries, summarise studies and investigations that examined water-miscible MWF mist as well as new techniques to monitor mist. Source: http://www.hse.gov.uk/research/rrhtm/rr1044.htm
Endotoxin in metal working fluid (MWF) mist
The risks to respiratory health from exposure to bacterial endotoxins are well established. The aims of this research were to: Review the evidence used to develop the health based recommended occupational exposure limit (HBROEL) for endotoxin of 90 endotoxin units per cubic metre (EU/m3) over an 8-hour period proposed by the Health Council for the Netherlands (DECOS); and to assess its relevance as a ‘benchmark' to assess risks to respiratory health caused by endotoxin in metal working fluid mists. Assess whether the published evidence on endotoxin concentration in metal working fluids...
Investigation of respiratory and dermal symptoms associated with metal working fluids at an aircraft engine manufacturing facility
Background Each year, 1.2 million metalworkers are exposed to metalworking fluids (MWFs), which can cause dermal and respiratory disease. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) conducted a health hazard evaluation of MWF exposures at an aircraft engine manufacturing facility. The objectives were to determine employee exposures to endotoxin and MWFs in the air, characterize symptoms experienced by employees working with MWFs, compare them to symptoms of employees unexposed to MWFs, and make recommendations for reducing exposures based on results. Methods Four hundred seven...
Metalworking Fluids & Legionnaires Disease
New guidance on the risk of Legionnaires' disease from water mix metal working fluids (MWFs) has been published. Recent research shows there is a minimal risk of Legionella bacteria contaminating such a system, if the system is properly managed. It is suggested that, following HSE’s existing guidance on managing bacterial contamination of metalworking fluids, should be sufficient to control the risks. Under normal circumstances there is no need for any additional measures. Source : http://www.hse.gov.uk/metalworking/legionella.htm?ebul=gd-engineering&cr=3/sept12
Les fluides de coupes
État des connaissances sur les usages, les expositions et les pratiques de gestion en France Dans les conclusions de son premier rapport l'agence [Anses] indiquait que dans un contexte professionnel où il est difficile techniquement de réduire les expositions, il apparaît essentiel de s'assurer et de vérifier l'application des mesures réglementaires d'évaluation des risques et la mise en oeuvre des moyens de protection, individuels et collectifs, des travailleurs exposés aux fluides de coupe, qu'ils soient utilisateurs de...
Survival of Legionella pneumophila in metalworking fluids
HSE asked HSL to gather supporting evidence as to whether or not water miscible MWFs pose a Legionella infection risk and whether a Legionella risk assessment and appropriate actions are necessary. Three short studies were undertaken with the aim of determining a) whether free living Legionella survive in different types of MWF, b) whether amoebae, that act as hosts for the replication of Legionella, survive in different types of MWF and c) whether a greater concentration of Legionella cells can be detected in samples of used water-miscible MWFs compared to samples of potable mains water used in...
Mists created by the use of compressed airlines for the removal of metalworking fluids - Assessment of the possible exposure health risks
The potential impact of the use of compressed air for the removal of residual metalworking fluids on health was investigated using a test chamber approach followed by a workplace study. The former had the advantage in that the background levels of particles could be reduced significantly. The greatest risk was found to be dermal exposure due to large droplets of MWF coating the worker's torso and arms. The visualisation of respirable mist using back lighting was not a reproducible phenomenon in either setting but in the test chamber, the use of particle counters revealed that a reduction in...
Travailleurs exposés aux fluides de coupe de métaux
Évaluation de l'exposition aux bioaérosols et effets sur la santé respiratoire et cutanée Certains problèmes respiratoires sont observés chez les machinistes travaillants avec des fluides de coupe soluble (FC). Ces problèmes pourraient êtres reliés aux aérosols contenant des microorganismes présents dans les systèmes de FC. Pour mieux comprendre les effets de ces aérosols sur la santé humaine, l'environnement de travail doit être caractérisé. Nous avons détaillé...
Réduction de la contamination bactérienne des fluides de coupe solubles
En 2000, près de 8000 travailleurs québécois ont été exposés aux fluides de coupe qui servent au refroidissement et à la lubrification du métal lors de l'usinage. La croissance bactérienne dans ces fluides est une problématique reconnue qui peut entraîner une perte des qualités intrinsèques des fluides de coupe. De plus, cette croissance dans les fluides peut produire une accumulation de toxines et d'allergènes. Lors des opérations avec des fluides de coupe, des aérosols sont produits...
Drilling Fluids and Health Risk Management
A Guide for Drilling Personnel, Managers and Health Professionals in the Oil and Gas Industry This document provides some general background on drilling fluids and the various categories of base fluids and additives currently in use. It outlines potential health hazards associated with these substances, looks at opportunities for human exposure presented by drilling operations, and introduces risk management methods and monitoring processes aimed at reducing the risk of harmful health effects. http://www.ogp.org.uk/pubs/396.pdf
