Título Who should handle garbage?
Título original Hvem skal ta' skraldet? [en danés]
Información bibliográfica Direktoratet for Arbejdstilsynet, Landskronagade 33, 2100 København Ø, Denmark, 1990. Videotape (25min).
Resumen The work on sorting garbage for the purpose of recycling, turning organic waste into soil etc. was originally done entirely in central locations. The first one in Denmark opened in 1986. Chronic asthma developed very quickly in some of the workers, because of exposure to endotoxins in the waste. Later on, sorting at the source e.g. in homes was introduced. The video explains reasons for the problems of sorting garbage in central locations. It shows technical and job organization improvements in modern plant. The video also outlines other OSH aspects such as ergonomics, repetitive work, and noise.
