It is known that this industry emits toxic and dangerous gases, for example (HN3, NO2, SO2, SIH4, H2 and CO), which negatively affect indoor air quality and, consequently, the health of workers and the surrounding community. This study analyzed the results of gas emissions for ten workshops Gold formulation and knowing the extent of its impact on the health of workers, as this study included estimating the concentrations of some gases such as HN3 0.09 ppm, NO2 0.0965 ppm, SO2 0.1 ppm, SIH4 0.1305 ppm, H2 2.95 ppm and CO 9.29 ppm, taking into account the examinations During six months, from October 2022 to April 2023, the results showed a clear discrepancy, as the workshops in which the gases were measured recorded high pollution compared to the recommended limits.
