JISHA delegation pays working visit to WEMOS

  • Mô tả On the afternoon of April 26, 2024, at the headquarter 99 Tran Quoc Toan, the National Working Environment Monitoring Station (WEMOS) hosted a reception and working session with chairman Toru Takegoshi and senior officials from the Japan Industrial Safety and Health Association (JISHA), on the occasion of their business trip to Vietnam.
  • Outstanding international cooperation activities of VNNIOSH in 2023

  • Mô tả The year 2023 marks many international cooperation activities of VNNIOSH including outstanding activities of exchanging delegations, attending conferences and seminars and receipting international delegations to visit and seek cooperation opportunities.
  • Seminars: “Current situation of occupational safety and health and issues that need to be researched in the period 2025-2030”

  • Mô tả For the purpose of assessing the current state of research and science and technology on occupational safety and health (OSH) in the period 2017-2023 and proposing tasks, directions and solutions to enhance researching and developing science and technology to overcome and develop OSH work in the period 2025-2030, in October and November 2023 the Viet Nam National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (VNNIOSH) organized a series of seminars: “The current situation of occupational safety and health and issues that need to be researched in the period 2025-2030” in 3 regions: North (Ha Noi), Central (Da Nang) and South (Ho Chi Minh City).

    Survey of the environment and factors related to health in workers occupationally exposed to trichloroethylene

  • Mô tả Comparative cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted from September 2022 to September 2023.The study was conducted on a total of 146 workers in groups exposed to trichloroethylne (TCE) in the working environment and groups not exposed to TCE in the working environment. TCE levels are monitored at the average shift worker's breathing area. At the same time, the interview was based on a prepared questionnaire on personal characteristics, clinical symptoms of eyes, skin, respiration, and nerves of employees. The research results we recorded: The group was exposed to TCE in the working environment, the average TCE concentration was 6.6 ± 5.1 mg/m3. Meanwhile, in the group not exposed to TCE in the working environment, the TCE concentration was below the detection threshold (detection limit - MDL is 1.516 µg/m3). In the group exposed to TCE in the labor market, the rate of respiratory symptoms was the most (21.9%), followed by eyes (13.7%), nerves (11,%), skin (6.9%). Workers in the group exposed to TCE in the labor market had a 2.3-fold higher incidence of respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, rhinitis) than the non-contact group (95% CI 1.03-5.0), the difference was statistically significant. Respiratory symptoms among workers in the TCE-exposed group in the working environment were higher than among those not exposed to TCE. However, exposure follow-up studies, combined with subclinical manifestations, are required before a definitive causal association between TCE and worker health can be established.
  • Actual status of the labor environment of underground coal mining workers in some coal mines in quang ninh province

  • Mô tả A cross - sectional survey was conducted on 80 working environment measurement samples at underground coal mining and 40 measurement samples at other locations, not underground coal mining. Research locations at two coal mining companies in Quang Ninh province. Research using calibrated measuring equipment. Measuring methods according to the instructions in the Technical Regulations on Occupational Health and Environment of the Ministry of Health. Measurement results are compared with current Standards. The results of measuring the working environment in the exposed group had a higher proportion of samples that did not meet the allowable standards than in the comparison group in terms of humidity, wind speed, and noise. The average results of these parameters in the exposure group were higher than in the comparison group. The measurement results of coal dust concentration in the exposed group are dozens of times higher than the allowed standard. Specifically, the average total dust concentration measured in the exposed group was 61.16 mg/m3, more than 20 times higher than the allowed standard (3 mg/m3). The average concentration of respiratory dust in the exposed group was 23.06 mg/m3, more than 11 times higher than the allowed standard (2 mg/m3).
  • Presence of Perfluoroalkyl Carboxylic Acids and Sulfonates in Vietnamese Food Contact Materials

  • Mô tả Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are considered as persistent organic pollutants (POPs), which should be restricted or eliminated. In this study, concentrations of four perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids (perfluorobutanoic acid PFBA, perfluorohexanoic acid PFHxA, perfluorooctanoic acid PFOA, perfluorodecanoic acid PFDA) and four perfluoroalkyl sulfonates (perfluorobutane sulfonate PFBS, perfluorohexane sulfonate PFHxS, perfluorooctane sulfonate PFOS, perfluorodecane sulfonate PFDS) were analyzed in food contact materials (FCM) collected from Hanoi, Vietnam. A total of 15 FCM samples was obtained including several categories such as instant drink/food boxes, bags, cups, wrappers, and tray. The FCM samples were untrasonic extracted with methanol, concentrated, and filtered before analysis by a liquid chromatography– tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) system. Recoveries of native and surrogate standards ranged from 70% to 130% with RSD < 20% in replicated analysis. Method detection limits of PFASs ranged from 0.04 to 0.08 ng/g. Concentrations of ∑8PFASs ranged from not detected (ND) to 1.46 (average ± SD: 0.417 ± 0.479) ng/g. Detection frequencies of PFASs decreased in the order: PFDA (33%) > PFBA, PFOA, PFHxS, PFOS (27%) > PFDS (13%) > PFHxA (7%) > PFBS (0%). Average concentrations of individual compounds decreased in the order: PFOS > PFDA > PFHxS > PFOA > PFBA > PFHxA > PFDS > PFBS. Relatively low PFAS concentrations found in the FCM samples of this study indicated that these substances were mainly derived from unintentional sources rather than intentionally added to the materials. Keywords: PFASs, PFCAs, PFSs, food contact materials, LC-MS/MS.
