Types of Chemical Exposure

Chemical exposure is one of the most typical causes of workplace injuries. Whether they know it or not, the majority of employees are constantly exposed to chemicals, especially those who work in oil refineries, industrial plants, chemical labs, gasoline companies and pesticide manufacturers.

The most common types of chemicals in the workplace include:

  • Asbestos
  • Benzene
  • Beryllium
  • Formaldehyde
  • Hydrogen sulfide
  • Toluene
  • Trichloroethylene

Exposure to these chemicals result in cancer, lymphoma, leukemia, respiratory failure, emphysema, or death. Even continuous exposure to bacteria, exhaust fumes, gasoline, and petroleum products can lead to severe illnesses.

Some businesses negligently and carelessly dispose dangerous toxic chemicals into the environment which may contaminate the water we drink or support wildlife and contaminate the soil which may render useless for farming and decrease the value of property. The responsibility for handling environmental exposure falls into the hands of the local, regional, and state governments.

Certain cleaning products and pesticides used at home are poisonous. Manufacturers may fail to properly package or label these products, making them accountable for any harm done to a user.
