Benzene is a highly flammable, colorless liquid that evaporates quickly. It may have a light-yellow color at room temperature and has a sweet, gasoline-like odor. Benzene is harmful to the eyes, skin, airway, nervous system and lungs. Classified as a Group A carcinogen by the EPA, benzene can cause blood cancers, like leukemia. This safety topic provides an overview of benzene awareness including health hazards, exposure limits, PPE requirements, fire protection and first aid procedures.
