ECOSPECIFIER ISSUES OF CONCERN / RED LIGHTS

Red Light Comment

Minor OH&S Issue: Wood dust is classified as carcinogenic (group 1) to humans by the IARC. As the product is used in solid form it is not considered to be of risk in use. This Red Light Comment relates to OH&S, if machining, sawing, drilling, routing, laser cutting or sanding is to be done. Personal protective equipment can be worn to minimise dust level exposure resulting from such activities.
