Exposure control
Basically work in exposure to coke, technological operations, transport etc do not
require special technical solutions for improvement of H$S conditions. Only in case
small size dry coke is used, coke dust in particular, it is necessary to use dedusting
equipment and protection against dust.
INDIVIDUAL PROTECTIVE MEANS, PPEs
Respiratory system
Hands and skin
Eyes and face
Work hygiene
Thermal hazard

Dust masks, respirators


Drill gloves
Protection glasses, face masks
Standard PPE clothes
Coke shortly after quenching can cause hazard of thermal
burn due to high temperature.
