What Is Toxic Exposure?
Toxic exposure means exposure to a substance that results in injury or illness due to the effects of the material on the body. Toxins cause harm when they are inhaled, ingested, or come in contact with the skin.
Toxic exposure can be caused by dangerous materials in any form. We may think of toxic exposure happening during a catastrophic chemical spill, but toxins are everywhere. OSHA regulates chemicals to prevent hazards in the workplace, but many people are exposed to dangerous substances on the job.
The most dangerous toxic exposure occurs when the toxins are invisible and hidden in everyday household products, like your frying pans, cosmetics, flame retardants, and insecticides.
What Materials Can Cause Toxic Exposure Injuries or Illnesses?
Of course, not all are toxic, but some of the most dangerous toxins include:
- Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) (found in nonstick cookware, water-resistant clothing, and stain-resistant fabric)
- Glyphosate (the key ingredient in Roundup)
There are thousands of other chemicals that you could be exposed to in the home or the workplace.
What Injuries or Illnesses Are Caused by Toxic Exposure?
Toxic exposure can cause a wide range of injuries and illnesses. You may suffer an immediate reaction, or the dangerous effects might not present for several years.

- Loss of eyesight
