(chemical products) are everywhere. It has
been estimated that over a half million chemical products are used by business
and industry every year. Some of these chemical products pose little danger
to you, while others are deadly.
Modern manufacturing would not be possible without chemicals. However, like machinery or electrical equipment, you must know how to use chemicals safely.
The first step in using chemicals safely is to recognize those materials that may be hazardous to your health or physical safety.
