I have had poor health the past 2 years, heart and liver problems,

Customer Question

I have had poor health the past 2 years, heart and liver problems, skin issues(dermatitis, break outs etc) breathing problems. Last week I trained 3 people on the equipment I use and they all fell ill with breathing issues, allergic reactions. They asked for the information about the chemicals I use. On it's data sheets it lists all the problems we are having my issues more specifically. As you can tell none of us have been told about the dangers of the chemicals but the company must know. What should I do? Will my heart and Liver get better if the safety equipment that we are meant to have is used? And just as important what should I and probably the others do next now we know the dangers?

Thanks
