Hazardous materials in the workplace can cause severe health problems and/or physical injury to the worker. Employers have the responsibility to anticipate, recognize, evaluate and control hazards associated with hazardous materials in the workplace. Hazard abatement must be accomplished through a hierarchy of controls. Hazardous materials can unexpectedly be brought home to a worker’s family, causing illness! There are many different classes of hazardous materials, but we will try to provide overall precaution when dealing with any type of hazardous material.
