Statement of evidence: Respiratory hazards of poultry dust

Poultry dust can harm the respiratory system (nose, throat, airways and lungs) and workers may experience a range of symptoms including sore throat, cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, bronchitis and even occupational asthma. Workers may also experience flu-like symptoms. A statement of evidence has been prepared which describes the composition of poultry dust and its health effects more fully.
