What kinds of substances can cause harm to employees?
Occupational illnesses and injuries can occur as the result of dangerous substances in the work environment. While employers are supposed to keep employees safe by maintaining a clean working environment, sometimes toxic substances can harm employees. Some of the most common types of toxic substances in the work place include:
- Methylene chloride
- Hydrogen peroxide
These substances can cause severe illnesses and injuries to those who come in contact with them. If you have been injured on the job due to exposure to toxic chemicals, whether or not the particular chemical is on this list, you may be eligible to seek financial compensation to help pay for medical expenses.
