When a person enters a meth lab before it has been properly cleaned and decontaminated, contamination becomes a real and serious health risk. Immediate exposure to a meth lab is serious. Toxicity levels and the sudden release of gasses can lead to long term health issues and potential disability due to the associated respiratory effects of corrosive and poisonous gasses.
Further short and long-term health risks associated with meth labs can include eye irritation, respiratory issues, insomnia, skin irritation, nausea, vomiting, headaches and chest tightness.
