ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the hazard of poultry dust to poultry worker's health and the publication by the British Health and Safety Executive (HSE) of a guidance for minimising dust exposure. Research revealed that workers on poultry farms are exposed to an airborne cocktail of particles. Symptoms of Farmer's Lung include irritation of the nose and eyes, fever and general aches and pains. The guidance produced by HSE includes tips such as carrying out tasks when dust levels are naturally lowest and adopting low-dust cleaning methods.
