The Consequences Of Exposure

Toxic substances are all around us. Chemicals can be airborne particles, vapors or liquids. They serve countless useful functions, and they are essential for manufacturing, construction and numerous other industries.

But many of these substances are not concentrated enough to cause drastic health problems.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration establishes safe thresholds for exposure to certain toxins. Improper handling, accidental spills or chronic exposure to unsafe chemicals can have tragic consequences.

The health impact may be immediate, causing extensive damage to your lungs, eyes or skin. Or you may suffer long-term illnesses that worsen over time. Much depends on the type of chemical involved and the type of exposure.

Sadly, most incidents of toxic chemical exposure are preventable. The cause can often be traced to oversights such as:

  • Inadequate ventilation
  • Lack of safety goggles, gloves or respirators
  • Improper training
  • Malfunctioning tools or equipment
  • Insufficient waste management for chemical disposal
