Helping You Get Results
Workers and supervisors might both work hard to reduce on-the-job accidents such as slip-and-falls and vehicle accidents. Through safety training and personal protective equipment, workplaces might see a reduction in serious accidents. However, it is not uncommon for employees to suffer dangerous exposure without even realizing it.
Workers might face toxic chemicals on every shift without any knowledge of the danger. Exposure to asbestos fibers, silica dust or benzene could lead to serious diseases or fatal conditions including mesothelioma, skin damage and lung cancer. In general, toxic elements can enter the body in three ways:
Additionally, a fourth method might occur, albeit less common – injection. If a needle or other sharp object punctures the protective garments and delivers the chemical directly into the body, a worker can find himself or herself in danger.
With any toxic exposure or workplace accident, workers are encouraged to examine their benefits. Workers’ compensation benefits will likely pay for medical treatment or lost wages depending on certain factors. Do not hesitate to protect yourself and your finances.
