Examples of Workplace Exposure
There are a variety of different situations in which exposure may cause workplace injuries. These may result from a single instance or from continued exposure. In some cases, such as those involving asbestos exposure, the worker may not see symptoms or be diagnosed for as long as thirty years or more after the original exposure. Family members of workers may also be at risk of exposure, if the worker carries home toxic substances on his or her clothing (this may occur with asbestos fibers in particular.)
Some examples of grounds for workers' comp exposure claims may include: exposure to loud noises, exposure to heat, fire or explosions, radiation exposure, exposure to mold or other naturally occurring toxins at work, exposure to light, and exposure to dangerous chemicals. Exposure of this kind may be more common in the manufacturing and construction industries but may also occur in virtually any work environment.
