All chemicals we use can potentially cause harm to our health so its very important that we understand what that hazards are and how to prevent exposure. There are four main classes of health hazard namely corrosive, toxic, harmful and irritant. These are then sub-divided into different categories depending on the degree of danger and assigned specific hazard statements
Corrosive material which may cause skin burns and permanent eye damage.
Toxic material which may cause life threatening effects even in small amounts and with short exposure.
May cause serious and prolonged health effects on short or long term exposure.
May cause irritation (redness, rash) or less serious toxicity.
