Identification of risk factors

This video shows workers manufacturing bricks in a small brick factory.

Natural clay minerals make up the main body of brick. After the bricks have been formed, they are dried to remove excess moisture. Next, bricks are manually loaded onto the conveyor belt and transported into the kiln where they are burnt at very high temperatures to give them their final hardness and appearance.

Now use what you have learnt in this course and identify risk factors for work-related diseases or injuries in this workplace.
