This includes the use of the necessary and correct personal protective equipment, designed to stop skin and inhalation exposure, proper training to minimise unsafe practices, and appropriate ventilation for hazardous fumes.

Symptoms, diagnosis and treatment
MEK, like many solvents, usually targets the central nervous system and causes headaches, fatigue, dizziness, vomiting, and issues, such as irritation to the nose, throat, eyes and skin. If there is constant exposure, the issues could be very serious, if high levels are reached. This can include organ damage, to the liver and kidney, and cause, not only damage to the nervous system, but to the respiratory system as well.
Further issues are caused by the fact that MEK leaves the system quickly, so diagnosing it can be difficult unless done directly after exposure, through blood and urine tests, though it can sometimes be detected on the breath. The treatment, however, is simple enough, and is achieved by removing the threat of further exposure and treating whatever symptoms you may have. Whatever the case, if this has occurred and it was not your fault, you should be able to make a Welwyn Hatfield no win no fee injury compensation claim.
