Sulfur miners at Ijen typically carry heavy loads of sulfur on their shoulders, ranging from 70 to 90 kilograms (150 to 200 pounds). The physical strain from carrying such heavy loads on difficult terrain can lead to musculoskeletal issues and injuries.The sulfur deposits around the crater are highly acidic, and miners come into direct contact with this acidic environment. Prolonged exposure can cause skin and eye burns, exacerbating the risks to their health.
