The dust harm is serious, the treatment is urgent

the dust hazard is serious, and the control is urgent

recently, the State Administration of work safety issued a “notice” to strengthen the dust hazard control work of cement manufacturing and stone processing enterprises The circular pointed out that it will take about a year for all regions to focus on special governance. By the end of May 2014, the cement manufacturing and stone processing enterprises that did not meet the requirements of dust control engineering and the dust concentration exceeded the standard were ordered to stop the operations that caused dust hazards; For those who still fail to meet the requirements by the end of October 2014, the local government shall be requested to close them in accordance with the law

this is based on the investigation and testing of 31 cement manufacturing enterprises and 20 stone processing enterprises in six provinces organized by the General Administration of the people’s Republic of China from May to August 2013. 1n addition, the notice also puts forward corresponding governance measures for the problems found in the investigation< 1n an interview, Gao Shimin, director of the Occupational Health Department of the State Administration of work safety, said: "the survey found that the prevention and control situation of dust hazards in cement manufacturing and stone processing enterprises is not optimistic, and the dust concentration detected in workplaces generally exceeds the standard, especially in small and medium-sized micro enterprises, where the foundation of occupational health management is very weak, the effect of dust removal facilities is poor, and protective equipment is not in place Some enterprises are still using the production technology which is eliminated by the state, and the dust hazard is very serious, so it is urgent to control it. " the process flow of the two industries is very different, but the dust hazard is very serious “although the process flow of the two industries is very different, the dust hazard in the workplace is very serious, and we must pay enough attention to it.” Gao Shimin stressed that “not only the dust concentration of small and medium-sized enterprises exceeds the standard, but also the dust concentration of some large enterprises exceeds the standard, only to some extent. 1n this survey and detection of enterprises, there is no one whose dust concentration does not exceed the standard. “ numbers are the most objective. According to the investigation and test results, the total dust concentration (hereinafter referred to as the total dust concentration) of the packaging and loading posts in cement manufacturing enterprises ranges from 4.07mg/m3 to 462.73mg/m3, with the maximum exceeding 115.68 times; The concentration of respirable dust (that is, the dust that can enter the lung, hereinafter referred to as respirable dust concentration) is betwee2.64mg/m3 and 115.53mg/m3, with the maximum exceeding 77.02 times. The total dust concentration of cutting, grinding and carving posts in stone processing enterprises ranges from 1.50 mg / m3 to 852.00 mg / m3, with the maximum exceeding 852 times; The concentration of respirable dust ranged from 1.20mg/m3 to 124.33mg/m3, with the highest exceeding 177.61 times in order to let reporters better understand these figures, Gao Shimin gave an example: “during the investigation, the ground of the packaging workshop of a cement manufacturing enterprise was covered with thick dust. 1 accidentally stepped on it, leaving a deep footprint, almost drowning the whole foot. We can imagine the dust concentration of the operation site and the bad environment. Can workers avoid occupational diseases if they work in such an environment for a long time? “ our website solemnly declares that this article is reprinted by network media, only representing the author’s point of view, and has nothing to do with our website. 1f the information column articles and comments violate your legal rights, please call to let us know and we will deal with them in time
