Chemical Exposure Facts:

Print this page

Would you knowingly expose yourself or your family to a chemical that could cause harm or death? Of course not. But it might surprise you to learn that many people experience chemical exposure every day, both in the home, while out shopping, on the job, or even at their local playground.

In today's modern, industrialized world, chemicals are everywhere, and while they cannot be escaped, the exposure to them can be limited. However, that can only occur if someone understands the ins and outs of chemical exposure, including whether he or she has been exposed to toxins at all!

As a quick primer, the following are some recent chemical exposure statistics that have been generated from various national databases on chemical exposure. Though they are only estimates, they might surprise you.

Chemical Exposure Statistics:

  • The number of contusions or abrasions suffered as a result of chemical exposure: 3,200
  • The number of burns suffered as a result of chemical exposure: 33,200
  • The number of cases of poisoning as a result of chemical exposure: 22,900
  • The number of cases of dermatitis and conjunctivitis linked to chemical exposure: 20,500

Are these numbers significant? Absolutely. Does that mean that employers are going to heed them? Not likely. Unfortunately, humans have been imbued with a sense of "It can't happen to me"-ism. That means we take unnecessary risks every day, and sometimes end up exposed to toxins as a result.
