  • lung function test among Abrasive Blasting workers in lumut perak
    International Journal of Integrated Engineering, 2019
    Co-Authors: Hanis Zakaria, Muhammad Faris Fauzy, Mohamad Farid Sies, S. Hassan, Norzelawati Asmuin
    Abstract:

    Abrasive Blasting process is a common process in marine industry. This process was use as main cleaning process method and normally will release fine dust that hazardous to human health. Main effect from fine dust to human health are respiratory failure such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Lung funcfunction test can be used to detect any respiratory problems in human. The objective of the research to evaluate the effect of dust exposure from Abrasive Blasting to the workers. This study are conduct among workers work in dusty environment in Lumut, Perak, Malaysia. FEV1/FVC value from lung funcfunction test were evaluated to determine the severity of COPD among workers. While FEV1 prediction show restrictive pattern and use to determine any respiratory or lung problems among the workers. From the result, it does not show any COPD problem among workers. However, FEV1 show that some workers need to go for detail medical surveillance because of the result is less than 0.8. Employer and workers need to understand and know their work related risk to minimize the risk arising from their job or work conducted.

  • Dust Exposure Monitoring: Abrasive Blasting Dust from Cleaning Process in Marine Industry
    International Journal of Integrated Engineering, 2019
    Co-Authors: Hanis Zakaria, Mohamad Farid Sies, Industrial, Mohamad Khairul Hafiz Mohd Katman, Norrizal Mustaffa, Norzelawati Asmuin
    Abstract:

    Abrasive Blasting is one of application that widely use in marine industry. This process is expected would release dust that believe can be harmful to human health such as cause of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In Malaysia, Ministry of Health report that the deadliness of COPD for men in Malaysia peaks at age 80 and above. COPD start kills men at the lowest rate at age 10-14.  This study to determine the dust released from Abrasive Blasting in cleaning process and effect to human worker. This experiment was conducted using establish method which is NIOSH 0500 and NIOSH 0600 for exposure monimonitoring process. Sample from exposure monimonitoring process were analysis using XRD for determine the composition of dust release from Abrasive Blasting activity. Result from study show that level of exposure to dust release from Abrasive Blasting activity are exceed from the limit under Occupational Safety and Health (USECHH) Regulations 2000. Silica dioxide and other hazardous composition found under XRD testing

  • evaluation of two lead based paint removal and waste stabilization technology combinations on typical exterior surfaces
    Journal of Hazardous Materials, 2001
    Co-Authors: Alva E Daniels, J R Kominsky, Patrick J Clark
    Abstract:

    Abstract A study was conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of a wet Abrasive Blasting technology to remove lead-based paint from exterior wood siding and brick substrates as well as to evaluate the effectiveness of two waste stabilization technologies to stabilize the resulting blast media (coal slag and mineral sand) paint debris thereby reducing the leachable lead content. The lead-based paint removal technology effectiveness was determined by the use of an X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrum analyzer (L- and K-shell). The effectiveness of the technologies to stabilize the debris was evaluated through the toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP). Wet Abrasive Blasting effectively removed the lead-based paint coating from both the wood and brick substrates to below the US Department of Housing and Urban Development Guideline (1 mg/cm2) with no minimal or no damage to the underlying substrates (P

  • Ergonomics of Abrasive Blasting: a comparison of high pressure water and steel shot.
    Applied Ergonomics, 2005
    Co-Authors: Beth Rosenberg, Lu Yuan, Scott Fulmer
    Abstract:

    Abstract Abrasive Blasting with silica sand has long been associated with silicosis. Alternatives to sand are being used increasingly. While NIOSH has done extensive investigations of the respiratory effects of the substitutes for sand, the ergonomic effects of the substitutes have not been examined. Too often, hazards are shifted, and technologies that might save workers’ lungs could do so at the expense of their musculoskeletal systems. Hence, the objective of this study was to examine the ergonomic effects of alternatives to sand. Multiple methods, both qualitative and quantitative, were used to yield numerous kinds of data for the analysis of exposures to Abrasive blasters. PATH, a method for quantifying ergonomic exposure in non-routine work, was combined with interviews with workers, biomechanical modeling and noise level readings to assess the ergonomics of two Abrasive Blasting operations: high-pressure water and steel shot. Advantages and disadvantages of each medium are discussed. High-pressure water was slightly less ergonomically stressful, environmentally cleaner, much quieter and less dusty that steel shot, and it was reported to be slower on those tasks where both media could be used.
