A chemical hazard is a type of occupational hazard caused by exposure to chemicals in the workplace.
Occupational hazards can encompass many types of hazards, including chemical hazards, biological hazards (biohazards), psychosocial hazards, and physical hazards.

Cutting fluid

Associations also exist for exposure to arsenic, benzopyrenes, lead, dynamite, carbon disulphide, carbon monoxide, metalworking fluids and occupational exposure to tobacco smoke.
Occupational exposure is associated with increases in cardiovascular disease.

Carbon disulfide

carbon disulphideCS 2 carbon bisulphide
Associations also exist for exposure to arsenic, benzopyrenes, lead, dynamite, carbon disulphide, carbon monoxide, metalworking fluids and occupational exposure to tobacco smoke.
Occupational exposure to carbon disulfide is associated with cardiovascular disease, in particular: stroke.
