You'll be fine.

Well, at least as fine as I am, and I don't think I suffered long-lasting physiological or mental damage after drinking the stuff when I was 8.

I run half marathons regularly, play badminton and tennis competitively, and am as fit as a fiddle.

And it might just be an idea to go and read the COSHH worksheet for the product. Also, if you aren't PA 6 qualified, then you really should be. In fact, it's a requirement IN LAW. Along with having the PROPER PPE to do the job.

Sounds as if your boss disregards Health and Safety rules and other legislation on employment /workers' rights. I would find another job asap.
