Hazardous chemicals can cause serious burns in the workplace and at home. When products are mislabeled, placed in the wrong containers (containing misleading labels), or are used improperly, they can cause serious chemical burns.
- Most chemical burns are to the face, eyes, arms, and legs.
- Chemical burns can cause deep tissue damage, pain, infection, low blood pressure, dizziness, muscle twitching, seizures, and cardiac arrest.
- Common household products can cause chemical burns: bleach, concrete mix, drain cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner, pool chlorinator, any cleaning product containing lye.
- Most chemical burns happen in the workplace where chemicals are used in manufacture and in cleaning processes.

If a chemical was improperly stored in the workplace or if it was used inappropriately, the contractor or supplier may be at fault.
