Exposure to Toxins in the Workplace
Individuals who work in certain types of factories, on construction sites, in coal mines, at hydraulic fracturing (fracking) locations and in other similar fields of industry may not realize that they are at heightened risk for chemical and toxic exposure. In some circumstances workers may be entirely unaware that they are handling hazardous chemicals and toxins. They may just be going about their day-to-day jobs, trying to make a decent living so as to provide for themselves and their family. Even with safety measures in place to prevent exposure, simply being in close and continuous proximity to toxic chemicals may be enough to cause serious, long-term damage. Older homes and buildings can contain significant amounts of lead, asbestos and other toxins that you and your family could be exposing yourselves every day. Close proximity to a factory, manufacturing plant or other similar business could lead to chemical exposure as well. Studies have shown that exposure to the harmful chemicals and other potentially deadly toxins found in these environments can cause breathing problems, various forms of cancer, lung disease, and often result in a person's untimely death.
