Abstract:
This study has as a purpose the evaluation of the biological parameters imposed by the current legislation for workers in the food industry, which come in direct contact with unpackaged food. These evaluations, performed during the year 2014, targeted a number of 535 workers to which clinical examinations were conducted, with particular attention to the teguments, coproparasitological tests and fecal bacteriological tests. From the total of all the workers in the analyzed lot, 12 presented pyodermitis, as a result throat swabs, nasal exudates and exudates of the purulent secretion have been indicated additionally. From the 12 persons which presented skin disorders, 8 have performed the employment medical control and 4 came from manufacturing at the indication of the head of unit. The obtained results prove the absence of pathogenic organisms targeted by fecal bacteriological tests at the analyzed persons, the presence of some parasite cysts on 9 persons from the 535 analyzed and highlighting the presence of coagulase-positive staphylococci in the wounds of 8 of the 12 employees analyzed.
