The Minus Eye Is Post Work At The Steel Melting Site?
, I want to ask the impact of working for 5 years in the heat of 1000 degrees, because now I start to feel nausea, dizziness, vomiting “, cramps, body aches and frequent symptoms of typhus. Is that the effect of my work in the area of steel smelting? I intend to moving area but the result of the MCU only states MY EYES ARE MINUS 4. This includes PAK (Occupational Disease), Please advise Sir what should I do?
Hello Novia, thanks for asking.
Exposure to extreme heat in workers is a problem that is often encountered and can have bad consequences if not anticipated. Appropriate use of PPE, restrictions on the length of time of heat exposure, room design, and routine health checks, are needed to prevent abnormalities due to heat. The obvious danger from heat is dehydration, so that regular consumption of fluids in sufficient quantities should be done. Other extreme heat hazards are:
Heat rash. Redness that looks like blisters on the skin due to increased body heat. Heat cramps. Excessive muscle tissue damage that gives symptoms of pain and muscle cramps. Heat exhaustion. Symptoms include headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, weakness, decreased amount of urine. Heat stroke. Symptoms include decreased consciousness and seizures. It may be that the symptoms that you feel are including PAK. But you have to get a definitive diagnosis so you can move to another area. You can ask for a second opinion from another doctor if you are in doubt. Try to keep using PPE and maintain fluid intake.
Hopefully this information can be useful. Regards.
