Proposal #3

Problem: 
  • In the oil industry, there are many workers working daily to get oil and natural gasses. As they breathe in hours of oil fumes and eat/drink food that could come in contact with oil day after day, it is starting to have a serious impact their health. Workers are then at a higher risk for many cancers. Some examples are blood cancer, stomach cancer, liver cancer, pancreas cancer, prostate cancer, eye cancer, and brain cancer. They can also get blurry vision, headaches, unusual deaths, asthma, heart attacks, damaged liver, skin rashes, and more.

What Should We Do?

There are many ways we can help with this problem. The first example is building a little portable trailer/house that will store all the foods and drinks of the workers safely without it being touched by the oil fumes, and before the workers eat they should wash their hands with soap and water. The next example is to wear a thin protective suit with a face mask. This will help with oil fumes from being inhaled by the workers.
