Occupational Diseases From Toxic Exposure

Working aboard ships is a risky and demanding occupation.  While many injuries are caused by heavy equipment and dangerous machinery onboard cargo ships, fishing boats, tugs, barges, drilling rigs and other maritime vessels, an offshore worker must also be careful of the hazardous chemicals being transported on on tankers and barges. These dangerous chemicals can include benzene, toluene, naphtha, gasoline, xylene, jet fuel and other refined petrochemicals. Many workers are injured due to the inhalation and exposures to theses chemical fumes, vapors and the  product itself.

Illness and disease caused by these various chemicals can include:

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML Leukemia)

Myelodysplastic Syndrome or Myelodysplasia (MDS)

Aplastic Anemia (AA)

Multiple Myeloma

Non Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL)

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

Blood Cancers / Bone Marrow Cancer

Lung Cancer

Kidney Cancer

Bladder Cancer
