DBE is transported in the UK in road tankers and there is always the possibility of an accident. The consequences could be serious, since this chemical is absorbed by all routes, rapidly penetrates clothing and there is no effective antidote. Severe cases of poisoning are difficult to treat and there is a high mortality. Prevention of exposure is therefore essential.
