What Is Occupational Exposure?
“Occupational exposure” or occupational disease refers to situations where a worker develops a medical condition or illness as a result of the conditions or the environment of the job or the nature of the work performed over a period of time. Some examples of occupational exposure include:
- Chemical exposure: Comes from years of breathing dust, fumes, asbestos or other harmful chemicals. Common to factory workers, warehouse workers, industrial workers, garage workers, those in maintenance or manufacturing jobs, and people who work in enclosed spaces. This exposure can cause breathing problems, pulmonary or respiratory disease, mesothelioma, asbestosis, skin rashes and other conditions.
- Repetitive lifting: Involves jobs which require repeated lifting such as packing, loading/unloading, hospital or nursing home orderlies, nurses, warehouse workers, package deliverers, and construction workers. This exposure can result in chronic pain or related conditions in the back, legs, shoulders, knees or feet.
- Repetitive motion: Involves jobs which require repetitive motions of the wrists or hands, common to embroiders, production line workers, assembly line workers, secretaries, mechanics, and food preparation employees. This exposure can result in carpal tunnel syndrome of the wrists, arthritis, or chronic pain or conditions of the hands or arms.

Diagnosing Occupational Exposure and Chronic Conditions
Certain conditions that come about because of workplace hazards can be very difficult or impossible to diagnose as definitely work-related, even when they are. Hearing loss, diminished vision and stress and anxiety are examples of difficult-to-prove occupational exposure conditions. If we represent you for your workers’ compensation exposure case, we will arrange an examination with a skilled medical expert to identify any conditions or injuries related to your employment.
