Chemical Safety

Safe Handling Chemicals


Any single exposure to hazardous chemicals can be life-threatening. Hazardous Chemicals can be unpredictable, unstable, and dangerous when handled unsafely. Especially if you work with them regularly – it’s very easy to get complacent. (Yes I’ve seen someone who should know better blow off his thumb-nail with elemental Sodium!)
