Other hazardous toxins such as pesticides are widely used every day. A person or company working with a known hazard has a responsibility to follow the established safety procedures for that material. There are procedures and regulations dictating how a material is to be used, removed, stored, and disposed of. You may be surprised how often corners are cut in the removal, storage and disposal of hazardous materials in the home and workplace.
Some examples of toxin exposure include:
- Handling pesticides over a long period of time.
- Breathing significantly polluted air over a long period of time, resulting in respiratory problems.
- Being exposed to toxic chemicals during an accident, such as a train derailment or truck accident. In these cases, the toxins may spread over the surrounding neighborhood.
- Breathing in lead paint dust or ingesting lead paint chips (typically a problem affecting small children).
- Drinking ground water contaminated due to a company's negligent disposal of hazardous substances.
