Illnesses associated with poultry farming
If you work at a poultry farm, there are various health problems that you might suffer. For example, there are zoonotic illnesses, which are those which can be transmitted from animals to humans; these may be caused by viruses, bacteria or fungal infections. Other health problems can be respiratory issues if you work in a dusty environment, so you should be provided with breathing apparatus to ensure you don’t develop such a disease.
Although formaldehyde is a suspected carcinogen, it continues to be used in brooder houses and hatcheries, but if possible a different type of disinfectant should be used to minimise the health risks to workers who have duties to perform in such environments.
Eyes and skin are vulnerable to irritants, so protection should be used when possible. If you cannot wear protective gloves while performing your duties, then you should use a barrier cream to protect your skin and prevent irritation.
