How You Can Help
Reducing exposure to irritating chemicals in the office environment can help reduce symptoms caused by irritation and help you increase productivity. Here are a few tips about reducing chemical irritant exposure where you work:
  • - Avoid strongly scented or aerosolized air fresheners in bathrooms and work areas
  • - Do not use scented garbage bags
  • - Have your carpets cleaned on the weekend to give them time to air out
  • - Do not use spray bottles to apply chemicals – opt for chemicals that are not dispersed into the air. Aerosolizing chemicals leads to inhalation, or ingestion into the lungs, of cleaning and air freshening products.
  • - Some products must be aerosolized during application. Keep employees out of areas in which they are in use until chemicals have settled.
  • - Do not use products with dyes
  • - Always ensure that the correct personal protective equipment is being used at all times.
