More about your workplace and how it affects your health:
Some places that you work at can be dangerous to your health. They can cause you a lot of medical and
mentally problems. We know you have to work, now days if you do not work your not going to get
anywhere. We are not telling you to run off and quite your job but we want you to do your work safely. So
talk a long look into your work environment to see if you are safe or not. Does your environment affect your
health?


What are some of jobs that are bad for one to do?
Some of the jobs that are bad for your health are sawmills and other mills the reason for this is because of
the small gains that you breath in your lungs. In sawmills, a person will breathe in the sawdust, which
effects your respiratory system. Other types of mills a person will breathe in all the small gains like corn, or
wheat, and what ever else they grain up. Breathing all this stuff can cause you to develop lung disease and/or
lung cancer. Factories often cause bronchitis, allergies and so on.


People in the southern parts work in the coalmines. These people have it bad too for the same reason. When
the person visits the doctor environment factors are considered, which doctors often find damage due to the
chemicals in the atmosphere or environment?
Coalmines are filled with black Sid. Black Sid will causes diseases known as the black lung cancer. Once
the disease is in your system, unless your doctor caught it at the first stage, usually a person is out of luck.


Jobs may include the ones where a person has to spray to kill the weeds and the bugs. Spray is used to
terminate lime also. The crops require such sprays to grow healthy, yet a person breathing in these hard
chemicals are at risk. The chemicals do not only kill what they are spraying, but it ends up killing the person
slowly. These chemicals could cause lung cancer or lung disease. Alternatively, if you are one of the lucky
ones that don’t get lung disease or cancer you just might various types of breathing problems.


What can I do to be safe while am at work?
When at work and you want to stay safe. You have options when it comes to workplace. You can play it
smart and ask your supervisor if a mask is available. A caring supervisor will have one ready for you. If
your supervisor does not offer you a mask, then you take it in your hands, go to your local drug store, and
buy one for your own safety. In addition, make sure you wear the mask, it will help you in the end, since
you will be better off than if you do not wear it.


What kind of mental problems can a job cause?
All jobs come with stress we have no control over. However, you can learn to control the stress that is put on
you if you let stress control you that is bad for you. Stress will take control if you let it. We all have
deadlines to meet as well as making sure we are doing our job the right way. Stress if out of control however
can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, or even a stroke. Just remember you have all the control to
handle the stress or to let it handle you. If you learn to handle stress and wear mask you will live a healthier
life so play it safe.
