AMBIENT FACTORS IN THE WORKPLACE
The provisions of this code should be considered as the basis for eliminating or controlling exposure to hazardous airborne chemicals, ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, ultraviolet, infra-red and (in some circumstances) visible radiation, electric and magnetic fields, noise, vibration, high and low temperatures and humidity. Notwithstanding the variety of the covered ambient factors, the magnitude of technical aspects that were linked with social policies and economic considerations and the diversity of situations, it was possible to identify some basic overall principles and various options for balancing competing interests, and to determine practical solutions in terms of procedures and allocation of responsibilities. Therefore, this code places emphasis on the role and obligations of competent authorities, the responsibilities of employers and the duties and rights of workers and others with regard to the prevention of illness and injury to health due to hazardous ambient factors in the working environment.
