Workplace Exposure

Workers across the country may be exposed to both visible and invisible hazards in their workplace, including many that take years to develop into serious illness. This is true whether you work at a construction site or in a seemingly safe office environment. Fortunately, workers of all stripes are protected by a group of laws requiring employers to provide their employees with a safe workplace and protective gear, if necessary. FindLaw's Workplace Exposure section covers the various kinds of hazards that may be present in your workplace, such as tobacco smoke or asbestos, in addition to summaries of your rights and tips for protecting yourself in the workplace.
