New Jersey Chemical Exposure Attorney

Chemical Injury Lawyers Representing Clients with Workplace Injuries in NJ

Evaluating and controlling chemical exposure in the workplace is critical to ensuring a safe work environment, one in which workers are not harmed.  According to the New Jersey Department of Health, a very effective way to control chemical exposure is to control the potential exposure of the chemical at the source. This can be done in various ways.

In many instances, certain chemicals are currently used because they have been the traditional chemical used for a particular task.  However, less dangerous alternatives may exist.  If a company or a manufacture uses a chemical, which has a safer alternative, they may be liable if using the more dangerous chemical harms an individual.

A second way of controlling chemical exposure is to isolate the use of the chemical. Isolating the potential chemical exposure can be done through physically enclosing the area in which the chemicals are being used, typically done by only using the chemicals in a particular room or in a particular building.  Additionally, a hazardous chemical can be limited in the actual times it is used.  Specifically, if a chemical is harmful, its use can be limited to a second or third shift, a shift in which fewer workers will be potentially exposed to the harmful chemicals.  Ventilation is also key. Using exhaust systems to ensure proper ventilation will obviously limit potential chemical exposure.

Worker education and accommodation must also be implemented to ensure that workers remain safe. Personal protective equipment such as respirators, protective clothing and suits must always be used. Additionally, educating the workers on what is dangerous, what is harmful, and how to avoid exposure must be done periodically.

Unfortunately, all of the aforementioned procedures are not always employed at the worksites throughout the state of New Jersey. Sometimes, when proper safety procedures are not employed, devastating work injuries result.
