In order to know what the potential problems are that would exist in our case study of benzene exposure, we must first gain an understanding of what benzene is in terms of a substance. Benzene is a chemical that is a colorless or light yellow liquid in its state at room temperature (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2013).
