Who is responsible for your Chemical Poisoning?
Your employer should undertake the necessary health and safety procedures to prevent chemical poisoning. Many employees worry that they could lose their job if they make a claim against their employer. However it is standard practice for an employer to have insurance that should cover any insurance awarded.
Millions of employees are exposed to chemicals every day and in most work places they have the proper protection to prevent any chemical poisoning. However if proper health and safety is not followed or implemented it can mean serious consequences when workers are exposed to dangerous chemicals unnecessarily. If you develop a health problem, disease or are injured because of neglect you could be able to make a chemical poisoning claim for compensation.
Chemical poisoning can cause all kinds of health problems, some which are short lived and other more serious permanent conditions. Workers involved the industrial, manufacturing or engineering processes are more likely to exposed to dangerous chemicals.
It has also been known for members of the public to have been exposed to dangerous chemicals as a result of negligence, for example with industrial waste that is released into the sea, rivers, land sites or air by a company, causing serious health problems from chemical poisoning.
