Injuries can happen anywhere and in any manner, even in the workplace. Workers in California need to be especially vigilant when avoiding possible toxic exposure, but you may not be aware of what to look for. We at Koszdin, Fields, Sherry and Katz can not only represent you if you suffer injuries after being exposed to dangerous chemicals, but have also prepared this guide to educate you on everything you need to know about toxic exposure.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the government has created limits and regulations to ensure that work environments do not have dangerous levels of airborne chemicals. If you are worried about the permissible exposure limit at your job, you can ask your employer where the levels are measured and check the amount that is emitted. If the substance you are being exposed to does not have a limit in place, you may need to do research to ensure that you are breathing in safe amounts.

There are two types of hazards that you may encounter. One is physical and includes corrosion, flammability and the ability to explode. The other type is referred to as a health hazard and describes what happens inside your body over time. Repeated exposure can lead to irritation, sensitization and carcinogenic possibilities.

Toxic exposure can cause immediate physical damage or have gradual effects over time. Both types can cause serious injury and reduce your quality of life. For more information on toxic exposure and what you can do about it, please visit our web page.
