You are worthy of knighthood!
Did you know? Agencies like the U.S. Department of Labor, as well as OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health
Administration) provide enforceable standards of safety on the job for workers in the United States. This can
become important when considering all the hazardous substances to which one can become exposed to in the
course of employment. No matter what type of place we work in, we face occupational hazards. Look at asbestos.
Asbestos is linked to lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. People at risk from mesothelioma and other
respiratory hazards include construction, demolition, ship breaking workers. Aggressive lawyers who deal with
these issues day in day out through the course of civil litigation for toxic tort exposure damages understand these
issues only too well. One of the problems with exposure to asbestos is that a long time can pass between the
exposure and the appearance of respiratory disease. Another occupational hazard can result from benzene
Benzene has been linked to leukemia, lymphoma, and anemia. People who work with solvents, such as
mechanics, painters, and chemical industry workers are susceptible. Ask any experienced and aggressive
attorney who works in this sector and they'll tell you that benzene is one of the most well-known occupational
hazards. Beryllium is another well-known hazardous substance within the arena of toxic tort exposure. Harmful
exposure to beryllium can cause lung cancer or beryllium disease, a scarring of the lungs. Plaintiffs in beryllium
exposure litigation could include nuclear industry personnel, specialty ceramics workers, dental lab personnel,
metal workers, and laboratory workers. Lawyers who work in the field of toxic tort litigation stemming from
exposure to harmful and hazardous substances and known carcinogens will also be ready to warn you of the
dangers of exposure to manganese. High levels of exposure to manganese have been linked to Parkinson’s
Disease and Manganism. Managanese has been known to cause brain damage. Welders are particularly at risk
because of the presence of manganese in welding rods. Silica is another occupational hazard recognized by toxic
tort legal specialists. For instance, exposure to silica dust can cause silicosis, a disease in which lung tissue is
scarred. Workers and employees at risk include those who work in the construction, demolition, and insulating
industries are susceptible. An employer who fails to provide a safe workplace can be liable for health and safety
violations under OSHA, the EPA, the Department of Labor, as well as state and local regulations.

After seeing you "slay" such a difficult question, a question meaner than any
dragon that has threatened our kingdom, we vote to have you knighted and
admitted to the hallowed round table of wheelhouse knights. Here here!! Prepare
yourself for a knighting, with which comes accountability, responsibility, an
accompanying level of stress, and hopefully, a salary to make those things a little
more bearable! Good luck!
