So, how should we take care of ourselves?
– Prior to working with a chemical / toxic substance, demand appropriate guidance and protective equipment from your employer. Read also the safety data sheet of the product (MSDS) and get acquainted with its specific risks.
– When working with chemicals you must wear a long smock, closed work shoes, safety goggles and appropriate gloves.
– If you fear poisoning or any other harm from chemical agents, ask for a doctor’s advice – this is your right.
– If you work with pesticides, it is your employer’s duty to have you undergo appropriate occupational medical tests, also before you start.
