NOWADAYS, greenhouse gases (GHG) pose a threat to the veterinary world as an air pollution problem. This review article discusses the impact of GHG on both chickens and human health in broiler chicken farms. Aside from an effective method of preventing and controlling the phenomenon. Numerous factors influence the rate of gas emissions, including nutrition type, feed conversion rate, and waste management. The harmful gases on-farm production involving carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane that affect workers’ health as well as the hazards that result from frequent exposure to those gases were stated. Reduced stocking density of birds inside buildings, enforced ventilation, hygienic disposal of wastes (liquid, solid manure, and poultry mortalities), litter, and nutritional treatment will alleviate GHG emission and reduce the likelihood of exposure, thereby relieving the load on both bird and worker health at the farm level.
