Around the World, a Death Occurs Every 20 Seconds Due to Poor Indoor Air Quality!
Chemicals and related odors can be sources of Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) problems in buildings. Odors are organic or inorganic compounds and can be both pleasant and unpleasant. Some odors can be health hazards and some are not. While chemical contaminants can originate from within the building, chemicals can also be drawn into a building from the outdoors as well.
Electricity can be dangerous whenever you work with power tools or on electrical circuits, there is a risk of electrical hazards, especially electrical shock. Anyone can be exposed to these hazards at home or at work.

How long can someone be in a loud noise before it's hazardous?
The degree of hearing hazard is related to both the level of the noise as well as to the duration of the exposure. But this question is like asking how long can people look at the sun without damaging their eyes.
Occupational hearing loss is one of the most common work-related illnesses in the United States.
Each year, about 22 million U.S. workers are exposed to hazardous noise levels at work. Over 30 million U.S. workers are exposed to chemicals, some of which are harmful to the ear (ototoxic) and hazardous to hearing. In addition to damaging workers’ quality of life, occupational hearing loss carries a high economic price to society.
