Napo Video – Dust at work

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Napo is the cartoon hero of a series of awareness-raising films about workplace safety and health. These films are an ideal way to spread the basic principles of occupational safety and health (OSH) in an engaging and informal way. All the films in the series are language free, so can be understood by anyone.

Dust is a potential problem in the workplace in two different but significant ways: respiratory problems and dust explosions. The harmful effects of dust can vary from skin irritation to lung cancer depending on the composition of the dust, and the type and degree of exposure.

“Napo in… dust at work” illustrates some of the many situations and substances that generate dust and emphasises the importance of controlling exposure to dust at work to avoid ill health. The film ends with a bang – a dust explosion – the rapid combustion of fine particles suspended in the air often, but not always, in an enclosed space.
