Although Cal/OSHA regulates workplace chemical hazards and toxic substances, accidents do occur. When Occupational Exposure Limits have been exceeded, the adverse health effects may be realized immediately or may manifest over many years.
Workplace chemical exposures are the nation’s eighth leading cause of death, but the U.S. lacks any strategy for preventing the more than 40,000 premature deaths each year, according to Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). “More Americans die each year from workplace chemical exposure than from all highway accidents, yet we have no national effort to stem this silent occupational epidemic,” stated PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch, pointing out that allowed chemical exposure on-the-job is roughly 1000 times higher than in the general ambient environment.
Occupational exposures kill or severely deteriorate health slowly and silently, from cancer, neurological breakdown, cardiopulmonary disease, and other chronic maladies, more than 10 times the workers killed in all on-the-job accidents combined. “Reversing this long lethal trend requires a national commitment to ‘green’ the American workplace,” added Ruch. “Above all, OSHA needs to rediscover its ‘H’ by taking affirmative steps to sharply reduce the slow poisoning of American workers.”
