Using chemicals or other hazardous substances at work can put people's health at risk. So the law requires employers to control exposure to hazardous substances to prevent ill health.
Unsafe use and handling of hazardous substances can cause cancer, skin disease, poisoning and respiratory illness. A quarter of employees regularly use hazardous substances such as chemicals, flammable liquids and gases in their work.
Hazardous substances can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin and can cause both immediate and long-term health problems, including:
- chemical burns
- birth defects
Exposure to hazardous substances can also cause diseases related to skin, lungs, liver, kidneys and nervous system.
