Toxic chemical exposure occurs across all types of industries and work environments. While most exposures occur in factories, refineries and other industrial sites where hazardous materials are manufactured or used, even office workers can be at risk for exposure to dangerous chemicals and materials.
When a person comes into contact with a toxic substance, serious health effects can occur. Chemicals can enter the worker’s body through inhalation, swallowing or direct contact with the eyes or skin. Some effects may be immediate while others are delayed. Depending upon the type of substance and the disease involved, a worker may not exhibit any signs of damage until many years after the exposure occurred. Injuries in chemical exposure cases can be severe, ranging from burns and serious skin ailments to throat, lung, nerve and even neurological damage.
