Do you feel sick and think your illness might be job-related?

Do you come in contact with dangerous materials on the job like asbestos, lead, or toxic fumes, solvents, gases or dusts?

Does your job involve making the same movements over and over again with your hands?

Do you have any of these symptoms?

  • You have any trouble breathing on the job
  • You have hearing loss after being exposed to loud sounds at work
  • Your wrists, hands and or arms ache or feel numb, especially at night

Do your coworkers have health problems that are a lot like yours?

Have you been told you have asbestosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, tuberculosis, or lead poisoning?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, an occupational medicine evaluation might help you.
