Our environment is precious. When companies are careless with chemicals; when unsafe pesticides are used; when noxious fumes and industrial waste are released in the environment, and when man-made carcinogens are freely distributed the health and safety of all is in danger. At Hughes and Company we are ready to stand up to negligent companies who threaten communities and individuals.
According to OSHA an estimated 1.3 million employees in construction and general industry face significant asbestos exposure on the job. There are a number of situations that can lead to an environmental disease or injury – lead poisoning, asbestos, mold, toxic waste, chemicals, and pollution are just a few.
Environmental dangers tend to go undetected for long periods of time. Tragically, by the time they are detected, workers, individuals in a community, and even animals can be extremely ill. Side effects can be severe, and far too often they are terminal. Environmental injuries are very costly and can include radiation, chemotherapy, medications, and care, not to mention lost earning power, and pain and suffering.
Known Environmental Dangers
Asbestos, Benzene, and Berylliosis are three well-known chemicals linked to serious health risks.
Asbestos is linked to mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer. While the use of asbestos is well controlled today, it can take decades for symptoms caused by asbestos can take years to surface.
Benzene is another product that has been labeled by government agencies as potentially hazardous. It is linked to anemia, and leukemia as well as other serious side effects.
Beryllium results in a condition called berylliosis, which results from the inhalation or implantation of beryllium in the body.
