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
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.
