Risks To The Public
When an oil spill occurs, such as the BP Gulf Coast oil spill, toxic chemicals are dumped into our oceans and can surface on land. These toxic chemicals can be harmful to individuals who are exposed to them.
Some of the harmful effects of oil exposure can include:
- benzene exposure
- contamination of food sources
- toxic shock
- water and property pollution
Risks to Off-Shore Workers
