Use of chemicals exposes batik & handicraft workers to diseases

According to the information given by one of the top officials of the Occupational Safety and Health Department, workers employed in the batik and handicraft sector should be cautious of health risks caused by the chemicals which are used in the industry.

He added that, chemicals can lead to long-term health hazards especially if the workers are exposed to them right from the beginning. These chemicals, therefore, can be called 'silent killers', he said.

After the inauguration of the seminar on occupational safety and health, which was organized for the batik and handicraft workers, he revealed that these workers are prone to chronic health problems.

He also added that his department is involved in the task of creating awareness among owners as well as workers of the batik and handicraft sector about the issue of health and occupational hazards by means of seminars and site inspections. Till now, out of the 700 units in Kelantan, 23 units have been visited and surveyed by the officials of the department.
