Chemical burns caused by construction accidents in Arizona a hazard
Construction workers often use powerful chemicals for a variety of purposes on construction sites in Arizona. Such chemicals, acids or solvents are often used to remove or secure building materials during construction or demolition. Construction accident injuries result when workers come into direct contact with such strong chemicals. Chemical burns can occur when these materials get into someone’s eyes or touch someone’s skin. Construction workers can also suffer serious medical issues if they inhale such chemicals.
Some construction sites that use such powerful chemicals have washing stations or some way to dilute such chemicals if they come into contact with a person’s skin or eyes. But some construction sites do not have such safety equipment. And even if they do, sometimes the chemical reactions are so powerful, they require immediate emergency medical attention.
