Becoming blasé about chemicals in everyday life
Chemicals are part of our everyday ordinary life. They’re incorporated in many simple things, such as toothpaste, which we use all the time. By the time the consumer comes to use these chemicals, they’re reputedly safe. If not, they must carry sufficient warnings to make people aware of any risk.
The manufacture and storage of these chemicals can cause more of a serious health hazard to anyone who has to work in their vicinity. Safe storage and handling is, therefore, a key issue.
Health and safety bodies within the chemical industry
From an employer’s point of view, the responsibilities regarding any potential risks associated with the chemicals they handle can be determined from the REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) website. They must also comply with the CHIP (Chemicals Hazard Information and Packaging) regulations.
The various divisions of the chemical industry
The chemical industry as a whole here in the UK covers many sectors. These include the following:
- Production and storage of chemicals;
- Production and storage of pharmaceuticals;
- Refining of oil;
- Production and storage of industrial and domestic coatings;
- Production and storage of fertilisers;
- Production and storage of compressed gases;
- Production and storage of hygiene materials; and
- Bulk chemical transportation.
