Illinois manufacturer cited for heavy metal, chemical exposure

A work injury can come in many forms. Many times, on-the-job injuries are readily apparent, especially those that require immediate hospitalization. But other times, a work injury can be a lot more insidious and even take years to develop. This is perhaps especially true for such cases of long-term exposure to toxic chemicals. Unfortunately for one Illinois company, this is exactly the kind of scenario that workers appear to face in performing their employment duties.

Typically, industrial workers are at the greatest risk of falling victim to toxic exposure or some other work-related injury. Unlike an instantaneous accident, workers may not feel the dangerous effects of some chemicals until they are exposed to them over an extended period of time. As a recent incident in Illinois proves, there is a risk of toxic exposure in almost any type of workplace.

Unfortunately, it only takes one moment to make a tiny mistake before becoming a victim of a construction-related accident. For the potential victims of a construction accident, the resulting injuries are often serious -- or even fatal. Unfortunately, an Illinois man working on a project at Olmsted Locks and Dam lost his life earlier this month.

Even in what can be thought of as a relatively work safe environment, an industrial accident can occur within a blink of an eye. Sadly, the workers at an Illinois manufacturing company, Arens Controls, became painfully aware of this fact. Though the Occupational Health and Safety Association has never cited the company for any safety violations, an industrial accident still occurred, which killed one man and injured 10 other workers.
