What I don't understand about Singapore...

Why the guys who fog don't wear masks and goggles when they are fogging?
It's got to do some serious damage being in that fog all day long..

Sorry, I know what you mean, if I get a whiff of the pesticide it gets to the back of my throat - I can't imagine how they feel when they are in the thick of it all day

All the guys who I see are wearing masks, especially the ones doing ours and the other local houses.

I thought they had to wear them??? Obviously not, wow, how do they do it? That stuff is so potent. :shock:

They are supposed to wear respirator type masks. The reputable companies do use masks but not necessarily goggles (not required by NEA). The fly-by-night 1 or 2 truck companies cut costs where they can. They also have a bad habit of diluting the fogging mixture in ratios that are below the recommended dosages. You wouldn't know this because what you are smelling is the diesel or kerosine that is the carrier for the chemical not the actual chemical itself (maybe just a tiny bit).

Those guys have to have their blood tested also at regular intervals and sent to NEA as well.

Anyway it's a harmful job, imho...

The lowest paid are the ones being slowly poisoned to death. The highest paid ones are enjoying good air-con food in a high-rise somewhere...
