Many different types of substances that are present in specific work environments can be harmful to workers’ health, including “natural” substances. For example, potential health problems from exposure may include developing dermatitis from flowers, bulbs, fruits and vegetables to developing leukemia caused by benzene in crude oil.
According to the Labour Force Survey, an estimated 48,000 workers developed or had worsened breathing, lung and skin problems from their job in 2021/22.
It is therefore very important to provide COSHH training and harmful substance awareness for workers that could be exposed to toxic substances, and this training is crucial in preserving their short-term and long-term health.
