Types Of Chemical Burn And Inhalation Injuries

Chemical burns and inhalation injuries can cause very serious harm to those who are exposed. Injuries and illnesses vary, depending on the type of chemical, the concentration inhaled, and the length of exposure. The size of the particles inhaled can also affect the extent of a workers’ injury or illness. Depending on whether a chemical was inhaled or came into direct contact with the skin, it may cause:

  • Harmful skin rashes
  • Chemical burns to the eyes, nose, lungs, or skin
  • Lung damage
  • Pulmonary or respiratory disease or other breathing problems, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, and shortness of breath
  • Brain damage
  • Organ damage
  • Death

These injuries can also lead to illnesses, such as cancer, asbestosis, mesothelioma, RADS (Reactive Airways Dysfunction Syndrome), Parkinson’s disease, silicosis, Hodgkin’s disease, and aplastic anemia.
