Health Hazards Manual for Custodians, Janitors and Housekeepers
Brown, Nellie J.
[Excerpt] We will look at the principal occupational health hazards and exposures themselves and some of the related issues. We will look closely at the chemical composition of cleaning products to see what components appear to be particularly hazardous, how you are exposed to them, and what you can do to minimize exposure.
Preparation of this manual was funded by a grant from the New York State Department of Labor Hazard Abatement Board.
