3040 – 08 – Defining Factors that Increase Exposure
A wide variety of factors have influence in the severity of MWF exposure. One major factor is what sort of combination of chemicals are involved. Some combinations move through the skin quickly and are inhaled easier than others. If the sump level gets lower than the preferred level, then the chemicals become more concentrated leading to greater susceptibility.
The process that combines the MWFs, degree of refining or recycling of chemical additions, the chemicals quality, and the potential that a chemical reaction may occur can have an affect on exposure. These MWFs can mix with other substances at the site, with tool and workpiece materials making bad chemical reactions. You need to make sure you follow procedures when handling materials and mixing MWFs.
If duration and concentration of exposure is increased, than safety risks are also increased. If they have cuts or scrapes then they have greater risk of MWF exposure. Some employees are sensitive or become sensitive to MWFs overtime. Health risks also are increased if employees don’t wash themselves. Employees can be allergic to the detergents used after MWFs. PPE needs to be properly worn to remain safe.
The work and ambient environments can create exposure especially if it is dirty and hot.
