Abstract:

The most important factor is exposure to CS. Nearly anyone exposed long enough to this irritant will get a rash. Protective clothing must be optimal especially in areas where the fine dust is a constant threat. CS should not be handled with the bare hands. Supplied air suits are being employed satisfactorily. Any process in the working and packaging of CS which can be enclosed would be much less hazardous. An adequate hand cream should be employed. Any process in which a worker has developed an eruption of the hands and neck while wearing fatigue clothing should be attended by personnel in Supplied Air suits.
