Licenced chemical vendors:

These are individuals or companies who are permitted by law to sell chemicals to the public. This is usually done outside on the street.


Handling and distribution of chemical: Chemicals are substances that should be handled with care because of their nature. Many chemicals are harmful (corrosive) to human body and are thereby needed to be handled with utmost care. 


Channels for distributing chemicals:

  1. Producer—wholesaler---consumer.
  2. Producer-----consumer. The chemicals must be well packaged before distribution so as to avoid accident.


Effect of wrong handling:

  1. It can lead to damage of body parts.
  2. It can cause crop damage.
  3. It can lead to food poisoning.
  4. It can lead to death.

Production of all goods and services ends when goods get to the final consumer.



What are the effects of handling chemicals wrongly?


When production ends

Production of goods and services is said to have ended when the goods or services produced have reached the hands of the ultimate consumer.

The producer manufactures goods so as to meet the needs of the consumer. Therefore, when the consumer buys the goods and makes use of the products, it is only then that we can say that production has ended.
