Furniture manufacturing

Health and safety cannot be ignored in the furniture production. The negative effects of technologies on workers' lungs, fingers, ears, eyes and so on must be minimised by providing adequate training, supervision and safety equipment. Health hazards include exposure to wood dust, dangerous chemicals, noise, unguarded machinery, non-ergonomic handling procedures and fire/explosion.
