Problems with Water Quality Contamination near Gas and Oil Drilling Sites

The oil and gas industry in West Virginia was significant in our past and is vital to our future. Presently, the state of West Virginia is anticipating tremendous economic growth as the oil and gas industry develops. Not only are thousands of jobs being created, this homegrown energy could possibly eliminate some, if not all, of our dependence on other countries for our energy needs which may increase our national security.

Silicosis Risk for West Virginia Oil and Gas Drilling Workers

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has released a study which outlines concerns for the safety and health of those employed by oil and gas drilling companies who may be at risk for silicosis. Silicosis is a form of respiratory (lung) disease that results from inhaling silica dust. The microscopic fibers build up in the lung tissue, causing severe inflammation and scarring, thereby reducing the lungs' capacity to take in oxygen. Like similar toxic exposure diseases such as mesothelioma and asbestosis, silicosis often takes many years to develop into fatal respiratory symptoms. Chronic silicosis initially causes no symptoms, but symptoms may surface as long as fifteen to twenty years after silica dust exposure.silicosis1.jpg
