Food Packaging Plant - Engineering Control Methods

Most of the food we get from the grocery store is encased in some sort of artificial packaging. This packaging is usually made from plastic, glass, or paper. In the process of sealing these materials, they are often heated up, and in this process, emit toxic fumes, which when inhaled, can be dangerous and lead to long term health problems.
Controlling these fumes is crucial to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace, as well as to avoiding food contamination and subsequent widespread health concerns

See below for a complete list of engineering control methods for the food packaging industry.
