Chemical & Toxic Exposure

Dangerous Chemicals in the Workplace

Exposure to chemical and toxic substances can result in a multitude of adverse health effects, including:

  • Irritation of the eyes and skin
  • Corrosion
  • Chemical Burns
  • Reactivity
  • Cancer

As such, federal authorities have ordered strict regulations on the handling and storage of such substances. Unfortunately, employers may not always do all they can to ensure these regulations are followed, putting employees and contractors at risk.

COMMON CAUSES OF CHEMICAL AND TOXIC EXPOSURE

Improper exposure can be caused by any of the following:

  • Improper labeling
  • Poor ventilation
  • Poor administrative control
  • Lack of protective equipment
  • Inadequate training
  • Improper storage practices
