Allergies and Health Risks

  1. Skin Irritation: Ebony wood, when handled without protection, can cause skin irritation in some individuals. Contact with the wood dust or even prolonged skin contact with the wood itself can lead to rashes and irritation.

  2. Respiratory Issues: Sanding or cutting Ebony wood can release fine dust particles into the air, which when inhaled, can irritate the respiratory system. Prolonged exposure to Ebony dust may lead to respiratory issues for some people.

  3. Toxicity: Ebony wood contains natural oils that can be toxic if ingested or inhaled in large quantities. It is important to take precautions to prevent direct contact with your mouth or eyes while working with Macassar Ebony

Safety Precautions

  1. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): When working with Macassar Ebony, always wear appropriate PPE such as gloves, a dust mask, safety goggles, and long sleeves to protect your skin and respiratory system from dust and potential allergens.

  2. Ventilation: Work in a well-ventilated area or use a dust collection system to minimize the amount of airborne dust in your workspace. Avoid working in enclosed spaces where dust can accumulate.

  3. Cleanup: Regularly clean your workspace and tools to remove Ebony dust and debris. Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter to capture fine dust particles and prevent them from circulating in the air.

  4. Hygiene: After working with Ebony wood, wash your hands and exposed skin thoroughly with soap and water to remove any potential allergens or toxins. Avoid touching your face or eating before cleaning up.
