Every day millions of employees are exposed to dangerous substances in their workplaces.

Failure to control the associated risks can harm people's health in many different ways including asthma, skin irritation or dermatitis, cancer, reproductive problems and birth defects.

It can also result in damage to the nervous and immune systems, affecting vital organs such as the lungs, heart, kidneys and liver.

In turn, organisations can suffer through lost productivity and increased liability to prosecution and claims for compensation from employees.

Legislation sets out the obligations of employers to prevent the exposure of workers to harm from dangerous substances in the workplace.
