Benzene is an aromatic hydrocarbon that is produced by the burning of oil based products. It is a component of products derived from coal and petroleum and is found in gasoline and other fuels. Benzene is used in the manufacture of plastics, detergents, pesticides, and other chemicals.
Medical research has shown benzene to be a carcinogen (cancer-causing). With exposures from less than five years to more than 30 years, victims have developed and died from leukemia. Short-term exposure to high levels of benzene can cause drowsiness, dizziness, unconsciousness and death.
Benzene exposure occurs in general industry, shipyard employment, and the construction industry. Individuals employed in these industries include benzene production (petrochemicals, petroleum refining, and coal chemical manufacturing), rubber tire manufacturing, and storage or transport of benzene and petroleum products containing benzene.
Others who may be exposed to benzene include steel workers, printers, rubber workers, shoe makers, laboratory technicians, firefighters, and gas station employees.
Benzene is made of coal tar and is a well-known carcinogen (or a cancer-causing chemical). Benzene is used as a base in making chemicals and plastics, but it is most often found in solvents and degreasers. Benzene is also used to make commonly used products like drugs, rubber, lubricants, dyes, detergents and pesticides.Take Home Message
