Although fashion moves faster and faster the concept of clothing hasn't changed much in over the years. It continues to shape the identities of individuals and societies around the world. Fabric is still being used to cover our body and continues to signify social code. Although clothing plays a role in identifying differences among individuals within different socioeconomic levels, it serves many practical uses as well. Clothes are necessary for several reasons: they help us identify cultures
There are many different types of clothing materials, such as cotton, wool, silk, fur. The massive increase in clothing industry due to the rapid growth of human population makes a huge impact to the environment. The production of clothing materials as well as the great amount of water needed in this industry contributes to the climate
2.3 Chemical Hazards Indoor sources of chemical pollutants are users, building materials and furnishing, use of disinfection and sterilization substances, cleaning agents and anesthetic gases. Studies by Bilban et al. Cheong and Chong and Dascalaki et al. asserted that chemical pollutants in hospital rooms are closely related to incorrectly designed or poorly maintained ventilation systems. Causes of concerns are also older facilities and other installations.
It is necessary to eliminate the possibility of contamination of the starting materials and/or products of other materials and products. Increased risk of accidental cross-contamination contributes to the uncontrolled spread of dust, gases, vapours, aerosols or micro-organisms present in the materials and products, equipment, and clothing (Coyle, et.al, 2004, 179-186). The degree of risk depends on the type of contamination and product exposed to contamination. The most dangerous pollutants are sensitizing substances, biological preparations containing living organisms, certain hormones, cytotoxics and potent substances (Pye & Blott, 2009, 170-181). Contamination is particularly dangerous for drugs used for injection or for the treatment of open wounds and also intended for prolonged use and/or receiving high doses.
The threat of a chemical attack includes gases, liquids, or powders, which can result in the injury or death of citizens through poisoning the blood, skin blistering, choking or respiratory issues, a loss of nervous system functions, incapacitation, or death. To effectively manage a chemical attack, officials need to ensure their community is prepared for an attack of this nature. Following a chemical attack in the United States, response is the most crucial element in saving lives and preventing further spread of the chemical. Moreover, a chemical attack may result in the deployment of the Centers for Disease Control and response teams, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Emergency Management Agency; therefore, resulting
Mercury, benzene and arsenic are some examples. Chemicals with this symbol should be handled very carefully because if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through skin may even cause death in some cases. 2. Corrosive (Fig. 02) Corrosive substances are extremely dangerous.
Air pollution is a serious and dangerous matter happening globally. The process of burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas contributes to excessive release of pollutants into the air. Air pollution can put people at higher risks of developing asthma, cancer and respiratory diseases. Most air pollutants are carcinogenic and when inhaled through the mouth and into the lungs, it circulates hazardous chemicals into the body. Pollutants such as carbon monoxide inhibits the capacity of blood carry oxygen to organs and tissues, and people with chronic heart disease may experience chest pain when carbon monoxide levels are too high.
A growing number of potentially harmful chemicals have been incorporated into an expanding range of domestic household products and are sold worldwide (Glegg & Richards, 2007). Potentially dangerous chemicals can be found everywhere especially in chemical products at home. Household chemical products differ in the type of health hazard they pose to anyone. Some cause acute, or immediate, hazards such as skin or respiratory irritation, redness of eyes, or chemical burns, while others are associated with chronic, or long-term, effects such respiratory
As the world travelled back to the early age of humanity, clothes or fabrics are considered scarce and interesting add-ons on the human body but as human species evolved and technology are developed, clothes have become essential in a human daily life. The ideology of fashion or popular style of clothing has been a phenomenal aspect of human’s life. People across the globe are in uproar and ecstatic when this term is being introduced to the world. Countless of styles, decorations, and behaviors are displayed and practiced in people’s lives to show the creativity and confidence of the creator. Fashion always keep changing and evolving from plain evening gowns to animal looking pajamas, so anything can be a trend as long as it can attract the
Harmful condition from “water source that become polluted with any chemicals or organic matter is dangerous to human health, also for the air pollutant bring the nasal effect to the human because of contaminating air” (M.Harrison, 2001, p. 239). In Malaysia, there are many industrial zones in the development nowadays such as Port Klang, Pasir
