New York workers who are exposed to toxic chemicals may suffer serious injuries or even die. However, there are steps that chemical plant managers can take to reduce the risk that a worker is injured. To prevent chemical burns, chemical inhalation or general chemical exposure, it is important to have a safety plan. One of the most common causes of accidents is human complacency.
Having a safety plan and sticking to it may prevent workers from taking shortcuts or otherwise making mistakes that put themselves and others in danger. Workers should be properly trained in all aspects of their work such as loading or unloading to ensure that they are doing so in a proper manner. They should also be trained on how to correct an error as well as what to do if a problem arises.
