Hazardous substances in the workplace can be in the form of liquids, gases, chemicals, and fumes. Exposure to these harmful agents through inhalation, skin contact, or ingestion can lead to serious illnesses which can prove fatal with time. Anyone who is exposed to these hazards irrespective of their state or form is at risk. Workers who are exposed for longer durations are more likely to develop illnesses and showcase harmful effects. To prevent this from happening, organizations that are involved in industrial work need to place adequate safety measures in place.
