Clean up workers at risk from crude and corexit
There are safer alternatives
What are the health effects?
An average of two oil spills are reported worldwide every week.
Yet clean up workers still not prepared, not given proper equipment, and not trained as to the dangers they face.
Over twenty years since the Valdez spill little has changed.
To make matters worse, the “dispersant” BP is spraying in the Gulf by the hundreds of thousands of gallons is a petroleum product that will end up in the lungs and tissues of the people doing the clean up work.
