  • Occupational Lung Diseases Johns Hopkins Medicine

    1 day ago   Occupational lung diseases are the primary cause of occupation-associated illness in the U.S. based on frequency severity and preventability of the illnesses. Most occupational lung diseases are caused by repeated long-term exposure but even a severe single exposure to a hazardous agent can damage the lungs.

  • Wood DustOverview Occupational Safety and Health

       Wood dust becomes a potential health problem when wood particles from processes such as sanding and cutting become airborne. Breathing these particles may cause allergic respiratory symptoms mucosal and non-allergic respiratory symptoms and cancer. The extent of these hazards and the associated wood types have not been clearly established.
