What are Toxic Substances and Metals?
Toxic metals, which include "heavy metals," are individual metal compounds that affect people's health negatively. Some examples of toxic heavy metals include Arsenic, Lead, Mercury and Beryllium. In very small quantities, many metals on the toxic metal list are important since they support life. However, in larger amounts, they can become hazardous. These metals can cause significant health problems when they build up in biological systems. CK Solutions is well versed in the types of toxic metals that can be found in your companies facilities.
