Asbestos and Lead Exposure
Some occupations are more hazardous than others, often involving dangerous heights, close proximity to fast-moving traffic, or tasks involving live wires and heavy equipment. An often overlooked risk of the industry, however, is the exposure to toxic substances like asbestos and lead.
The Occupational Health & Safety Administration reports that about 1.3 million workers in construction and general industry face serious exposure to asbestos on the job. Unsafe working environments like this can cause several conditions, including lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Lead exposure is most dangerous to children because their growing bodies absorb more lead than adults. Children are prone to put their hands or toys in their mouths, allowing lead to enter their systems either through breathing in or swallowing lead dust, or by ingesting paint chips containing lead.
Severe lead exposure can cause brain and nervous system damage in children, as well as behavioral and learning disabilities, slowed growth, hearing problems, and headaches, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It can also cause reproductive problems, high blood pressure, hypertension, nerve disorders, and memory and concentration difficulties.
About 310,000 U.S. children between 1 and 5 years old have elevated levels of lead in their blood.
