How are People Exposed to Toxic Chemicals?
Negligent companies which use chemicals in their manufacturing processes ignore safe practices as a way to earn profit and increase efficiency, and as a result can harm victims via chemical exposure. Residents of towns where a chemical processing plant is located are very vulnerable to exposure — toxic substances can leak into nearby water supplies and into the air.
People who work in chemical plants, or other facilities which frequently use chemicals, can be severely impacted by the effects of exposure. Working closely with chemicals can result in ingestion, inhalation, or absorption through the skin, and result in debilitating health issues.
Toxic chemical are also present in many consumer products. Asbestos in building materials is one example of chemical exposure that can occur outside of a situation involving employment or environmental contamination.
