Waste is no longer considered by business and government as something you just dispose of at landfill sites, or incinerate. This book features a comprehensive assessment to evaluate the risk due to waste handling. It suggests significant recommendations and alternative technologies to reduce the amount of pollutants and to improve the quality of air in each working environment. The book surpasses the limitation of existing knowledge on the impact of waste recycling on workers. The literature concerning waste sorting has concentrated on organic dust and micro-organisms, and not on radon, particulate matter, VOCs, light, noise, relative humidity and temperature. This book suggests the application and use of a simple, less costly risk assessment framework to identify and evaluate the working environment, and help waste companies to establish and maintain good environmental and health standards. The book will benefit professionals working in research, the waste industry and regulatory bodies, and will act as a guideline for anyone involved and interested in assessing the impact of waste on workers and employees in the industry.
