Every day, people are exposed to numerous types of toxic chemicals in the workplace.  It is often impossible to detect the presence of toxic chemicals that seep into your skin as you work, or colorless and odorless toxic vapors that can be inhaled.  In many cases, the ill-effects of toxic exposure become evident only years after the exposure occurs.

    There are a variety of chemicals that can cause unsafe premises at work, some of which you may not even see as dangerous. Here are some of the most common toxic chemicals from USDoL’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and how they are typically used:

  • Arsenic comes in a variety of forms, and its uses range from pharmaceuticals, to agriculture, to even places like glass-making and semiconductors (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov).
  • Asbestos is a highly toxic chemical that is often used for construction products. Some of these are insulation, gaskets, construction-grade paper, etc. Asbestos can cause a variety of serious cancers ranging from Mesolethioma to Asbestosis (https://www.epa.gov.)
  • Benzene is an industrial chemical used in a variety of ways. It is naturally part of such materials as oil, gas, and cigarette smoke, and is used even further in lubricants, dyes, and detergents. While minimal Benzene exposure does not have any major short-term effects, exposure to large amounts can cause arrhythmia, while long-term effects can include anemia. This is a highly dangerous chemical (https://emergency.cdc.gov).
  • Beryllium, a metallic chemical common to the aerospace, telecommunications, and nuclear industries, is highly dangerous when inhaled. Those who inhale Beryllium in the workplace have been known to develop such diseases as Chronic Beryllium Disease and lung cancer (https://www.osha.gov). If you believe that an unsafe work environment led to dangerous contact with Beryllium, don’t hesitate to contact us now for a free evaluation and quote for your case.
  • Chromium poses a deadly risk of causing respiratory cancers when inhaled, and potentially even sinus cancers. In addition, it can also cause minor effects such as asthma in some cases. (https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov). Despite this, it is most often used in the steel-making industry for producing stainless steel and tanning most leathers (https://www.rsc.org).
  • Diacetyl is a common chemical used in food and drink flavoring which, according to tests done on some mice, also poses the chance of causing obliterative bronchiolitis (https://www.cdc.gov/).
  • Hydrogen sulfide is described as a “colorless gas with a strong odor of rotten eggs”, and is sometimes used in rayon textile factories, water treatment facilities, and petroleum mining. In large portions, exposure to such a chemical can potentially lead to respiratory irritation, insomnia, apnea, etc. (https://www.cdc.gov/)
  • Lead can be very common in today’s industries, from paint, to plumbing, to gasoline, and even to ceramics. This fairly dangerous substance has been known to cause cardiovascular, kidney, and reproductive issues. (https://www.epa.gov)
  • Mercury is a metallic liquid often used in thermometers, but is also used in such industries as dental, mining, and fossil fuel burning. Despite such widespread usage, Mercury continues to be a very toxic chemical capable of causing lung damage, neurological disturbance, and even kidney abnormalities. (https://www.cdc.gov)
  • Toluene is a natural chemical often found in crude oil and the Tolu tree, and is often used in producing paint, glue, nail polish, etc. Though immediate effects do not appear as common, long term exposure to this chemical can cause drunkenness, anxiety, dizziness, and worsen from there to numbness, pregnancy loss, slow reaction.
