Molten smelt; hot ash; black, white, and green liquor—professionals in pulp and paper mills may be exposed to any combination of these hazards on a daily basis. On top of this, many of the paper mills in the United States are located in the hottest, most humid parts of the country, making for even more dangerous working conditions. Having the proper personal protective equipment is imperative in these environments.
Most of the general public is unaware of how dangerous papermaking is. Workers in these plants are exposed not only to respiratory irritants, but also danger from flash fires and scalding. Paper mills are notoriously dusty, and the risk of this dust catching fire due to an errant spark from a tool or piece of machinery is unfortunately always present.
