In many work environments, exposure to toxic or otherwise harmful chemicals and materials can damage workers' lungs or their skin (on contact.) Often, this kind of injury occurs slowly, and unperceptively, over months or years. But it can occur in a shorter period of time or in a single incident too.
Asbestos, benzene liquid or vapor, and finely ground silica (quartz dust) are among the most common toxins/chemicals to cause injury to workers, but there are many other possible sources of such injuries as well.
