CHEMISTRY  2 Hazards  The effects of exposures to toxic chemicals are either acute or chronic. Acute  effects are characterized by prompt or slightly delayed health effects, such as burns,  allergic reactions, and immediate damage to organs such as eyes. Chronic effects  occur over a long periods of time and are characterized by cumulative damage to  organs including carcinogenic effects.  Minimizing or eliminating exposure provides protection from toxic hazards. To minimize  exposure it is necessary to determine the route by which exposure may occur, i.e.,  inhalation, skin contact, ingestion, and injection or puncture.  Precautions   (OHSA United States Department of Labor, 2009)  1. Know the hazards of the material you are using. Review MSDS sheet and do  additional research if necessary. Use less toxic materials if possible.  2. Use and store toxic chemicals in established areas and in the smallest possible  amounts.  3. Store and transport toxic chemicals in secondary containment trays.
