What Is Occupational Exposure?Occupational exposure and occupational disease are ailments in which a worker develops a medical condition or illness as a result of a work environment or the nature of the work that’s performed over a period of time. Some examples of occupational exposure include:Chemical exposure: Years of inhaling dust, fumes, asbestos, or other harmful chemicals can cause breathing problems, pulmonary or respiratory disease, mesothelioma, asbestosis, skin rashes, and other conditions. Chemical exposure often affects factory workers, warehouse workers, industrial workers, automotive workers, those in maintenance or manufacturing jobs, and people who work in enclosed spaces.
