I'm the safety inspector. My job is to make sure that everyone who works around chemicals is safe. I make sure that they take the right precautions to minimize any possible harm. If I find that someone is not handling chemicals correctly, I help them understand what the problem is and what steps they can take to be safe. After all, chemicals are important in our lives, but they can cause problems if not handled correctly. Take a look at my videos, and see if you can identify how people are exposed to chemicals.
