Textile Workers

Reference work entry


Occupational skin diseases in textile workers are related with their exposure to several products throughout the different stages of textile processing. These products may carry several potentially hazardous situations to human health, such as: sensitization, irritation, toxicity, or even carcinogenic/mutagenic character. This chapter provide a broad analysis of the previously mentioned situations, including aspects related to prevention and diagnosis. Special emphasis is given to the risks of chemical carcinogens, particularly within the azo dyes class. In this concern, focus is also given to regulatory prescriptions and existing recommendations.
