Hazardous Exposure

You work, play, learn, worship, shop, and socialize in many places. You go to work, eat foods, have fun, and converse without the conscious fear that the place where you’re currently standing, sitting, or breathing is a hazardous place.

Hazardous exposure can happen in places where you’d least expect it. Lead paint in old homes, radiation or EMF (electromagnetic fields) near factories or power lines, asbestos in old buildings, or deadly chemicals in the drinking water are all examples of hazardous exposure.

Hazardous exposure can happen:

  • At work
  • In public places
  • In your own home
  • In your neighborhood
  • In school

Hazardous exposure can include exposure to:

  • Chemical hazards
  • Radiation
  • Physical hazards
  • Environmental hazards
  • Biological hazards
  • Viral hazards

Most often, hazardous exposure happens in the workplace, but in many unfortunate circumstances children can be exposed to hazardous materials that can lead to serious physical consequences. There are thousands of cases every year in which tainted drinking water has been blamed for incurable cancers in children and otherwise healthy adults.
