Protecting against reproductive health issues

South Carolina workers are likely aware that coming into contact with chemicals or working in extreme heat can cause health issues. However, they may not be aware that they could cause issues with a man's reproductive health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are several factors that could factor into whether or not exposure will create such an issue. For instance, those who haven't been exposed for a long period of time may not be harmed.

In some cases, whether or not a man suffers reproductive health issues may simply depend on how his body reacts to being exposed. There are a wide variety of ways in which a man can be impacted by exposure. For instance, he could suffer from low sperm count or irregularly shaped sperm. Low hormone levels may cause a man to not engage in intercourse or otherwise perform poorly from a reproductive perspective. While these may be common issues, they are by no means the only effects one may experience.

Workers who believe that they have been exposed to materials that cause sexual issues may wish to alert their family members. This is because symptoms of exposure can be passed along to family and friends. The effects of exposure could be passed on even if a friend or family member had never been to an individual's place of work.

Although workers' compensation is traditionally associated with an on-the-job injury, benefits may also in some cases be payable to victims of an occupational disease. As these types of claims are somewhat harder to document and may also be challenged by an employer or its insurer, a person whose reproductive health has been jeopardized by an exposure to a toxic substance at work may want to have the assistance of an attorney when pursuing benefits.
