Answer

Exposure to FS is an occupational hazard in the chemical and metal plating industries. FS exposure also may occur in the production of detergents, soaps, fertilizers, or lead-acid batteries (car batteries), in printing and publishing, or in photography shops. With reduced use of FS by the military, exposure in that setting has become less common.
