It depends on the chemical and extent of exposure to the chemical.
Sodium chloride is a chemical but working with it does not increase risk of cancer. Exposure to benzene is associated with leukemias. Arsenic exposure increases skin cancer, others are: radon, polycyclic hydrocarbons, cadmium - lung cancer, aniline dyes - bladder cancer, etc.
