Hazards In Research Laboratories Chemical Exposure

Working in a laboratory often requires handling a wide range of chemicals, from acids, bases, inorganic and organic chemicals to solvents with different functional groups, each presenting a different health hazard upon exposure.

These health hazards range from skin burns and irritation to respiratory injury and carcinogenic health effects. Chemical splash is the most commonly occurring hazard or incident in a laboratory. Therefore, it is necessary to protect the researchers across the breadth of chemicals handled, and new chemical entities, for which complete toxicological testing has not been yet performed.
