Hazards related to chemical handling can lead to serious worker injuries, occupational diseases—even death. Workers may be at risk from chemical flammability and reactivity, contact with corrosive chemicals, asphyxiation hazards, and damage to body organs or systems. They are also at risk of developing contact dermatitis, asthma and cancers. This fall, the Ontario MOL is focusing on hazards involving chemical handling in an inspection blitz at industrial workplaces.
Make sure you are ready should a MOL Inspector give you a surprise visit.
