Millions of people suffer from allergies caused by everyday
exposures to agents such as dust mites, cat dander, and pollens.
Agents encountered by workers can also cause allergic problems such
as asthma, nasal and sinus allergies, hives, and even severe
anaphylactic reactions. Examples of these work-related agents include
animal proteins, enzymes, flour, natural rubber latex, and certain
reactive chemicals.
Asthma is one of the more serious problems that can be caused
by work-related allergy. It can cause recurrent attacks of symptoms
such as wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing.
In severe cases, these symptoms can be disabling. Fortunately, when
potential hazards are recognized, work-related allergies and asthma
can often be prevented or their effects minimized.
