The production, uses, and health effects of chemical agents widely used in diverse, small workshops were reviewed. Due to expanding technology the production of new materials has been rapidly increasing thereby raising the number of workers potentially exposed to hazardous agents. The toxicity, occupational exposures to, medical treatment of, and exposure prevention of commonly used agents were described. These agents included ammonia (7664417), chlorine (7782505) and its compounds, hydrogen-fluoride (7664393), hydrogen-sulfide (7783064), nitric-acid (7697372), nitrogen-dioxide (10102440), nitrogen-oxide (10024972), sulfuric-acid (7664939), hydrogen-cyanide (74908) and cyanide salts, sodium-hydroxide (1310732), sulfur-dioxide (7446095), formaldehyde (50000), ozone (10028156), ethylene-glycol-dinitrate (628966), nitroglycerin (55630), hydrazines, methyl-isocyanate (624839), phosgene (75445), phosphorus (7723140) and its compounds, phosphoric-acid (7664382), alpha-chlorinated toluenes, polybrominated biphenyls, polychlorinated biphenyls, naphthalene (91203), polychlorinated naphthalenes, 2-nitropropane (79469), o-toluidine (95534), benzidine derived dyes, chloroethanes, cresols, disulfiram (97778), ethyl- ether (60297), monohalomethanes, amines, vinyl-acetate (108054), and petroleum based solvents.
