Benzene exposure – High risk of Leukemia
How much Benzene someone is exposed to in combination with the amount of time they are exposed to Benzene determines the level of damage Benzene can cause.
People working with Benzene for manufacturing products containing Benzene, are at particularly high risk, since they are more likely to experience long term exposure to the chemical at high levels.
Benzene exposure defined as ‘long term’ is specified as twelve months or more.
Because of the risks involved with those working with Benzene, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set up very strict rules and regulation that must be be followed by employees and employers to protect everyone when working with Benzene. These rules can help cut the risk of Benzene exposure damage.
