Carbon Monoxide Poisoning on the Job, Workers Compensation Lawyers

Written by lisaspitzer. Posted in Injured Worker News

Carbon monoxide poisoning lawyers helping victims and families of  on the job injury from Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Serious Brain injury and wrongful death can occur from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Carbon monoxide is produced when fuels like gasoline are burned. Carbon monoxide is found in the exhaust of gasoline generators, chainsaws, water pumps, brush cutters and pressure washers. These are tools commonly used in the construction industry. Exposure to high levels of carbon monoxide fumes can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, which can cause loss of consciousness and even death. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 14 percent of all unintentional carbon monoxide fatalities in the U.S. occur in the construction industry. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 10,000 people seek medical attention for carbon monoxide poisoning every year in the United States.

EXPOSURE SOURCES AND CONTROL METHODS

* The manufacture and transportation of carbon monoxide

Operations near furnaces, ovens, stoves, forges, and kilns when they are being fired up to operating temperatures; firefighting, particularly in mines; testing of internal combustion engines; operations near portable stoves

Use in organic chemical synthesis, particularly in the Fischer-Tropsch process for petroleum products; in fuel gas mixtures for industrial and domestic heating; as a reducing agent in metallurgical processes such as the Mond process for the recovery of nickel; in the manufacture of metal carbonyl catalysts Liberation of exhaust from faulty equipment on autos, buses, airplanes, and boats; use of compressed air in respiratory devices in industry or breathing mixtures in diving, when the air is supplied from reciprocating oil-lubricated compressors

Methods that are effective in controlling worker exposures to carbon monoxide, depending on the feasibility of implementation, are as follows:

* Process enclosure Local exhaust ventilation General dilution ventilation Personal protective equipment

Workers responding to a release or potential release of a hazardous substance must be protected as required by paragraph (q) of OSHA's Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard
