In this episode of the Beasley Allen Report, Beasley Allen principal Kendall Dunson fills in for regular host Gibson Vance to discuss occupational exposure with fellow Beasley Allen attorney Parker Miller. Many times, employees are exposed to a number of chemicals that may have consequences on their both – short-term and long-term. Under the OSHA Act of 1970, employers are required by law to provide a place of employment free from recognizable hazards likely to cause serious harm, or in some cases, death. Miller reflects on how his experience working in the BP Deepwater Horizon litigation and how it is has helped him gain knowledge on the issues surrounding occupational exposure. An employee that is negatively impacted by his or her workplace safety is entitled to receive compensation through their employer.
