Chemical injuries are among the most serious you can sustain in the workplace, often leading to serious, life-long consequences.
There are many workplaces in which you may be expected to deal with hazardous substances, whether they are cleaning products or more serious chemicals such as arsenic or mercury. It is imperative when handling these chemicals that you are doing so with the right protection, which can include a HAZMAT suit, gloves, masks and other personal protective equipment.
Your employer should have also provided you with the right training in order to reduce the risk of injuries. When any of these preventative steps are neglected, you as an employee can be left suffering a number of injuries and conditions, including:
- Heart palpitations
- Difficulty breathing
