||The principal occupational hazards in chlorine-free potash production are potassium sulfate and potassium magnesium sulfate dusts, which are present in workplace air at concentrations from a few to hundreds of milligrams per cubic meter. The dust affects the respiratory systems of workers and lowers their resistance to other negative factors. Animal experiments showed that the compounds are somewhat toxic and mildly irritating to the skin and mucous membranes. The biochemical, physiological and morphological effects of the compounds suggest that the threshold of chronic effects of chlorine-free potash is around 15mg/m3.
