Working with Acids
Every year, hundreds of employees suffer severe and sometimes permanent eye, skin and respiratory damage from exposure to acids.
There are, however, many thousands of other employees who have worked with acids for years and never experienced an injury.
We are going to look at how we can avoid being a part of that unfortunate first group by talking about using acids in your workplace.
By the end of this talk you will understand:
• what an acid is;
• how acids cause damage;
• how to avoid contact with acids;
• the recommended First Aid treatment;
• operational and maintenance concerns; and
• what to do in the event of a mishap in order to minimise the environmental and equipment damage.
