    Alternatives to HF-based Car and Truck wash solutions needed

    Saskia Van Bergen

      "Occupational exposure to HF-based wash solutions can result in chemical burns, disability, and death. HF's potential to cause severe injury combined with the inherent challenge of relying on PPE to protect workers warrants efforts to identify less hazardous alternatives, which would provide the most effective means of prevention."
