Protecting Yourself from Toxic Substances

The environment we live in is full of toxic chemical and harmful fumes that badly affect health and lifestyle. There are different materials and chemical substances that can have adverse effects of health and to avoid getting harmed from these toxic substances, one must get checked by a physician. Circle Urgent Care offers a variety of services including testing people for toxic reactions.

Many people get exposed to harmful chemicals on job and when the effects of toxic substances are prominent, they can get compensated by the laws of FECA. Chemicals and toxicity enters our system through three ways given below.

Inhaling Toxic Chemicals and Fumes

The easiest way toxic substances enter our body and blood stream is through inhalation. If you work at a factory where toxic chemicals are used in the manufacturing process, there is a high chance that the chemicals have entered your system and attacking different organs and creating aftereffects. Breathing a chemical in can damage a person’s lungs and respiratory system. Especially for people that have allergies or asthma. If you work at a place where there are toxic fumes in the air, make sure you protect yourself from breathing the contaminated air. Physicians at Circle Urgent Care will conduct a thorough check-up and provide directions for protection.

Ingesting Chemical Substances

Ingestion simply means digesting a chemical substance or eating something that is contaminated. Ingestion of toxic substances may cause greater health problems. That’s why, make sure that you keep your food away from a toxic place for example; avoid eating in a factory or contaminated environment. Toxic substances do not usually enter our body through ingestion but it is still the most hazardous of all. Symptoms from ingesting a toxic substance or intoxicated food appear relatively quicker. So, when you start to feel sick, nauseated, etc, make sure you get help from a professional doctor.

Absorbing Chemicals Through Eyes and Skin

Another way harmful chemicals enter our body is through absorption. Chemicals can be absorbed by eyes and skin, that’s why people working in a toxic environment should use protective gear to stay safe from toxicity. In a chemically toxic environment or workplace, skin and eyes irritation are the most common symptoms. Make sure you consult with a doctor and get allergy medications to avoid skin and eye problems.

Workers Compensation

We make sure that the work and compensation related injuries of your workers are well taken care of on your behalf so that you can continue concentrating on the more important tasks. Our focus will be taking care of your workers compensation by keeping track of their illnesses and injuries, along with the insurance carrier requirements, patient needs, and employer needs.

The Integral Components of Workers Compensation

If an employee ever has to go through an illness or injury in the workplace, a team of medical staff and providers will ensure that they manage and take care of the whole process of taking care of the issue. They will do this by contacting the employee’s representatives and making sure that they have all the details with regards to the illness or injury so that they can carry out the process of recovery and healing for the employee.

After this, the staff members will make sure to communicate the information related to the compensation reports, appointment details, and screening results to the representatives or employers. This way they will remain up to date with whatever is happening. All of the records are saved electronically so that there is greater efficiency.

When it comes to the employees, the medical providers make sure that everything is recorded, from the relationship of the patient and the doctor to the condition of the employee. These detailed records are then sent to the employer so that they can view the progress firsthand.

 

The services of workers compensation provide employers with:

  • Proper management of cases related to workers compensation
  • Appropriate duty programs
  • Comfortable and highly accessible clinics
  • Convenient follow-up appointments
  • Direct communication with employers and insurance companies for easier workers’ compensation process

Without a doubt, workers compensation needs to be comprehensive so that proper care and attention can be given to all organizations.
