An overview of skin-related injuries on the job

West Virginia employees in varying lines of work may face related risks involving exposure to hazardous agents that could cause injuries or occupational diseases. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that at least 13 million individuals in the U.S. may face chemical exposure. Unfortunately, the focus in a work environment tends to be directed more at agents that could be inhaled than on those that could affect the skin. The standardization of assessment methods for addressing skin exposures is lacking.

New federal regulations could protect West Virginia workers

Many West Virginia workers are involved in the coal industry, and certain changes to federal law might benefit them. Those employees show up to work each day, putting their health at risk to perform the job. A recent report out of Kentucky indicates that at least one congressman has pressing questions about proposed changes to federal law.
