Professional people working with chemicals, whilst making every effort to ensure that they work safely, are fully aware of the potential danger when things go wrong.
Effective decontamination following a splash with a corrosive or irritant chemical is essential to prevent or lessen the severity of a chemical injury.
Amphoteric solutions are recommended for first line use to decontaminate chemical injuries by the British Burn Association and Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care.
