Chicago Chemical Exposure Lawyers
Exposure to hazardous chemicals on the job is a risk in workplaces, including many factories, chemical processing plants, construction sites and industrial settings. Chemical exposure injuries may affect lungs, skin and other vulnerable parts of the body such as eyes. Chemical burns and inhalation injuries are other common hazards
Chemical exposure injuries may occur suddenly, such as when a tanker truck spills, or they may occur over time as workers breathe in hazardous substances repeatedly. Hazardous chemicals in the workplace may include:
- Toxic substances
- Biological hazards
Proper risk control related to methane gas and other toxic materials in workplaces is covered in OSHA regulations and industrial standards.
