How to reduce your exposure to formaldehyde

worker wearing safety equipment

Do not run engines, such as those in cars or lawnmowers, in an attached garage or workshop, or near windows or entrances of your work. Engine exhaust contains formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals.

Follow health and safety instructions at work to reduce your exposure to formaldehyde.

Protect your eyes and face. Wear chemical safety goggles. A face shield may also be necessary.

Wear chemical protective clothing, including gloves, aprons and boots.
