2. Chronic exposure

Health affects resulting from contact with a hazardous substance over a long period of time is called chronic exposure.


Chronic exposure is continuous or repeated contact with a toxic substance over a long period of time like for months or years.

If a chemical is used every day on the job, the exposure would be chronic. Also, in some cases, it can also occur at home. (Source: ny.gov)
