Dealing with hazardous material

Liquid ice is one material which may cause problems. In the last few years, liquid ice, also known as liquid nitrogen, has become a popular feature in kitchens looking to produce standout, ground breaking dishes, meaning chefs are regularly dealing with hazardous materials like liquid ice.
Following in the footsteps of pioneers such as Heston Blumenthal, experimental chefs across the country are using liquid ice to create dramatic effects on a plate. You may also encounter liquid ice if you work in research or chemical engineering.
If you work with liquid ice, its essential to be aware of the potential risks involved. Examples of injuries which may result from working with liquid ice include:
- Cryogenic burns (burns caused by freezing)
- Stomach problems
- Skin irritation
- Eye injuries and vision problems
