Possibly.: This occupation deals with many different chemicals, of which mercury may be one. Very often workers in this area have to get almost immersed in the chemicals during their job, so it is very possible, even with protective clothing, that a great deal of exposure occurs and at least some chemicals can get in the bloodstream.

Mercury: Not likely. I would go to OSHA for details though.
