Benzene is a major industrial component that is widely used to manufacture products ranging from plastics, pesticides and pharmaceuticals. Major industries where Benzene is used include:
- Petroleum (Oil Refineries)
- Coke and Coal manufacturing
- Rubber tire manufacturing
- Storage Tank Farms
- Transportation service (Ships, tanker trucks, etc.)
- Chemical manufacturing
Such industries emit Benzene that leads to widespread environmental and occupational safety risks. Benzene is highly volatile, and exposure occurs mostly through inhalation. Human exposure to benzene has been associated with a range of acute and long-term adverse health effects and diseases. Benzene is a suspected toxicant to numerous systems critical to life that includes Cardiovascular, Endocrine, Gastrointestinal, Immunological, Neurological and Respiratory
It is therefore important to prevent exposures of employees to Benzene.
