Knowing what substances are harmful is tricky. Most businesses will use substances or products that are mixtures, and some of these have the potential to cause harm to employees, contractors, and other people. Some substances can even be created by processes that occur in the workplace, and it’s important to understand if and when this can happen in your workplace.
