Very cool video about the strongest acid in the world, fluoroantimonic acid, by YouTuber Chemical Force:
First thing that came to mind. Keep the baking soda handy in case one bleeds on you. In the video watching that drumstick being burned with acid made my skin crawl. That needs to be included into OSHA safety classes
To this day, I have a scar on my little toe from a small drop of NaOH that dripped on my shoe in the lab about 20 years ago.In college we often spilled concentrated sulfuric acid on our skin and as long as you get to the basin and rinse it off it won't burn you at all. I would be far more concerned with getting concentrated NaOH on my skin. Even oxidizers like 70% H2O2, or hydrogen peroxide, is more dangerous.
