Spritz of safety to fragrance manufacturing
08 December 2022
THE MANUFACTURING process for cologne and perfumes involves delicate extraction and mixing of several compounds, some can cause harm to workers if mishandled. Providing workers with the appropriate safety equipment in the event of an emergency is vital to prevent lasting harm.
It is not just the production process that presents dangers to workers, as transporting the finished product is also a particularly delicate procedure. In the event of a spill, ingestion or excess amounts of perfume contacting the skin can lead to perfume poisoning. Perfume poisoning can cause an affected person to suffer symptoms such as confusion and dizziness, followed by vomiting and slurred speech. To mitigate this risk, tank showers positioned at the site of loading can allow a casualty to immediately flush the site and minimise the amount of perfume absorbed by the skin. The tank-fed system also means that a constant water supply is not required for the unit to operate and can therefore add more versatility to positioning.
