Caustic and toxic chemicals in the workplace risk injuries

Caustic and toxic chemicals in the workplace pose serious risks of significant injury and even death. Proper training, maintenance of accurate Material Safety Data Sheets that are clearly accessible and understandable to the work force and maintenance of eye washes and showers, along with proper personal protective equipment are important to maintaining a safe work place. Recently OSHA proposed a significant fine for an insulation company that failed to maintain proper eye wash and shower facilities for its employees. Caustic chemicals can cause blindness, poisoning, burns, dermatitis and systemic diseases like cancer. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention maintains useful information on chemical hazards in the workplace, and offers tips to prevent them at www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/chemical-safety/.
