There is often copper in the environment in some way or another, and thanks to the fact that it can sometimes cause negative health effects, copper management is something that is of high importance in the industry.
If there is copper in the environment, then you can be exposed to it either by touching it, breathing it in, or eating it – usually by taking it in through a contaminated water supply.
Although you may not experience any effects at all from exposure, there are some that you need to be aware of, and these include:
– If you breathe in copper fumes, you may suffer from a sore throat, coughing, and a metallic taste in your mouth.
– If you touch copper, you could find that your skin starts to itch, and you may develop a rash.
When you consider the potential risks of being exposed to copper, it is clear that copper management is incredibly important. For this reason, you should always ask for professional advice if you feel that there could be copper present in a place where it could cause damage to humans – and the sooner it is dealt with, the safer everybody will be able to be.
