The "Arbeits-Sicherheits-Information" (Work Safety Information) 8.80 5) deals with the prevention of bakers asthma and describes procedures in bakeries in order to reduce the risk of getting bakers asthma and rhinitis to a minimum.

The protective measures required for this purpose are specified in part as so called basic protective measures. They have to be applied in consideration of the local conditions of a specific bakery. These basic protective measures should be applied to reduce the inhalation exposure to flour dust/sensitizing substances in accordance with the technical rule for hazardous substance 406 (TRGS 406) 6). They take into account also microbiological, chemical and physical influences and those of the work organization and the structural design of the bakery.
