The Chemical Industry in Canada

The chemical industry is one of Canada’s fastest-growing segments –  in recent years it's seen shipments worth over $53 billion. 

You can track nearly every manufactured good back to the chemical industry. 

For every one job in the chemical sector, it fuels five jobs everywhere else in the Canadian economy. 

If you’re employed in any of the following jobs, you’re likely part of the chemical industry:

  • Chemical production
  • Mining
  • Oil and gas
  • Pulp and paper
  • Laboratory work
  • Chemical transport
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Food
  • General manufacturing

The chemical industry is unlike any other in Canada, which also extends to its hazards and risks. 

Chemical splash incidents are rare but often traumatic, life-altering events. To put this into perspective, chemical injuries to the skin or eyes only represent a fraction of all recordable injuries, but they are responsible for approximately 30 percent of all burn-related deaths.

Levitt-Safety understands chemical hazards and provides a number of solutions for chemical decontamination, spill control, personal protective equipment and chemical detection.
