This new code of practice provides workers, employers and governments with practical safety and health guidelines for non-ferrous metal production - aluminium, copper, lead, manganese and zinc. It focuses on the general principles of prevention and protection, including risk assessment and management, training, and workplace and health surveillance. It identifies and examines a range of physical hazards commonly encountered in the production of non-ferrous metals such as noise, vibration, heat stress, radiation, confined spaces, dust and chemicals. In-depth sections also discuss health and safety measures for working with furnaces, molten metal, alloys and the process of recycling. ILO Codes of Practice contain practical recommendations intended for all those with a responsibility for occupational safety and health in both the public and private sectors. Codes of Practice are not legally binding instruments and are not intended to replace the provisions of national laws or regulations, or accepted standards. They aim to serve as practical guides for public authorities and services, employers and workers concerned, specialised protection and prevention bodies, enterprises and safety and health committees.
