Case Study: Five men were working on the top of a tower to take apart a frame of girders. One man was the burner, and the other four were steel erectors. While working, the men decided to take apart the structure by melting the cadmium-plated nuts, bolts, and washers. They were unaware of the toxicity of the cadmium. None of the men were wearing respirators, and they were in an enclosed environment lacking in ventilation. One of the men died and the other four were admitted to the hospital with symptoms ranging from gastrointestinal discomfort to difficult respiration and insomnia.

Key Takeaways: Being aware of cadmium sources and having appropriate protective equipment and ventilation is key in protecting yourself from cadmium poisoning. If the area had been properly ventilated and if the men had been wearing protective clothing and respirators, those safety measures could have prevented one man's death and four others from getting ill.
