As a member of LIUNA working in the Construction/Environmental field, you are no stranger to high risk environments. From working at heights and underground to roadways and containments you may come in contact with dangerous biological agents while performing your job. For example, the potential for exposure to mold and dust not only poses a direct risk to your health, but can also hamper your immune system’s ability to fight off other common diseases such as the Flu or the Norovirus.
Practicing standard precautions such as wearing personal protection equipment and frequently washing your hands, especially before you eat, is always your first line of defense. Learning how to recognize potentially hazardous situations and how to limit your daily exposure is critically important.
