By their very nature, harmful substances pose a real threat to human life. These substances fall into categories that include toxins, hazardous chemicals and contaminants. Exposure to any hazardous chemicals or toxic substances in a work environment can cause potentially life threatening illnesses, injuries and even death. Unfortunately, damage isn’t limited to just the workplace environment because it’s possible for hazardous toxins and dangerous substances to extend to the outlying community, as well.
The Threat of Toxins in the Workplace and Community
It’s difficult to confine, control and correct situations that cause hazardous toxins, substances or chemicals that leak, spill or otherwise affect the workplace. Because of this, these hazardous substances often cause widespread damage in the community. The afflictions related to harmful and toxic substances such as pesticides, mercury, mold, asbestos, radiation and pollutants, which contaminate the water supply, could be particularly devastating.
What Causes Injuries from Toxic Substances?
The practice of allowing unsafe health conditions to exist is linked to carelessness and negligence, any impactful work related hazards that result in serious injury. Most injuries related to hazardous substances, are due to negligence, they often go undetected until they reach the fatal end stage, and this is particularly relevant in most exposure-related cancers.
