Firefighters, cotton gin workers, and construction contractors all come into contact with occupational hazards that could increase risks for lung disorders. Coal dust, dust from hemp, flax, and cotton processing, and exposure to silica in the air all can cause work-related lung disorders. Asbestos exposure may cause mesothelioma and scarring of lung tissue. The other exposures cause obstruction of small airways or scarring and loss of elasticity and compliance. A bartender and landscaper are not at increased risk of occupational lung disorders.
