Let Our Lawyers Help Get You Compensation
Many workers are exposed every day to harmful and toxic types of chemicals in their day-to-day work. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) estimates that more than 13 million workers in the United States are potentially exposed to chemicals that can be absorbed through the skin. Dermal (skin) exposure to hazardous substances can result in many types of occupational diseases in disorders, such as some of the following:
- Skin cancer
- Skin infection
- Skin injuries
- Irritant contact dermatitis
- Allergic contact dermatitis
The most common type of harm, according to a study by the University of Arizona College of Medicine, is contact dermatitis, which can happen when workers are exposed to, or touch, metals, poison ivy, certain irritants, or are exposed too much to the sun. Prolonged exposure to certain types of irritants has even been linked to cancer.
