Some chemicals are hazardous and may be flammable, toxic, corrosive or carcinogenic. The most common risks are through contact with the skin or eyes, breathing in or swallowing.
Many cleaning chemicals are hazardous because they are corrosive and can cause burns or rashes from allergy or irritation from direct skin contact. Volatile chemicals such as solvents can be inhaled. Chemical spills and splashes may harm the eyes.
High concentrations of vapor or gas can accumulate particularly in poorly ventilated and confined areas. It is therefore important that employees who work with chemicals are aware of the hazards.
Chemicals are used mainly for cleaning in hotels. Persons at risk include housekeepers, stewards, laundry workers and engineering or maintenance personnel.
