Remember, if you do suffer an injury, you owe it to yourself and other casino patrons to work with a skilled Las Vegas personal injury attorney and be compensated for your suffering. By taking the casino to task for their negligence, you can help make sure the same kind of accident doesn’t happen again. About the Author:

There is nothing lucky about developing a respiratory illness, lung cancer, or heart disease—especially if you are a healthy nonsmoker.
Results of new research conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health NIOSH on secondhand smoke—the exposure of non-smokers to tobacco smoke—confirm that dealers at the casinos investigated were exposed to secondhand smoke.
Secondhand smoke, also called environmental tobacco smoke, is a combination of smoke given off by the burning end of a tobacco product and the smoke exhaled by the smoker.
Secondhand smoke is made up of approximately 4,000 chemicals, of which about 40 are known to cause cancers.
Longstanding NIOSH policy, consistent with and based on the U.
Any exposure to secondhand smoke increases the risk of lung cancer, other respiratory diseases, and heart disease.
Studies have shown that even low levels of secondhand smoke exposure can be harmful.
The only way to fully protect nonsmokers from secondhand smoke exposure is to completely eliminate smoking in indoor spaces.
Employees were selected to participate in the study if they reported that they did not use any tobacco products, did not live with someone who smokes inside their home, or were not exposed to secondhand smoke in any setting other than their job at the casino.
For comparison, a group of administrative and engineering staff who were not exposed to secondhand smoke at their casino job were included in the study.
Casino dealers were found to have increasing levels of NNAL in their urine over an 8-hour work shift showing that the cigarette smoke and a carcinogen are being taken up into their bodies.
NIOSH also conducted air sampling which found that components of secondhand smoke were present in the air of the three casinos.
Casino dealers had more respiratory symptoms than the administrative and engineering employees, but differences were not statistically significant.
Any modifications of the ventilation systems should be done in adherence with current guidelines.
In addition to scientifically confirming secondhand smoke exposure among the casino dealers, the results of this research also provide additional support for the use of NNAL as a marker of secondhand smoke exposure and will aid other researchers in future studies.
NIOSH would like to hear from you.
If your workplace has gone smoke-free, please tell us about the transition.
Were there specific steps taken that seemed to make the transition to a smoke-free environment easier?

We never heard back from them but this very inexpensive device could be employed to significantly reduce the secondhand smoke by pressurizing the space and creating more ultra-clean air changes per hour.
Obviously, the best solution is non-smoking.
We have this being used to provide a focused ultraclean air zone over surgical procedures to dramatically reduce infections.
We would like to emphasize that the only way to eliminate the health hazards associated with secondhand smoke exposures from indoor environments is to ban smoking.

I was in Vegas recently and talked to a head bartender who had to have two of her waitresses quit recently.
One actually had three people come and pat her belly, then all three lit up right in her face.
Folks must think cocktail waitresses and their unborn are of a different class…….
I have made a preliminary analyis of your data and arrived at the following conclusions: 1.
EPA Air Quality Standard descriptor for PM2.
Correlating Atmospheric and Biological Markers in Studies of Secondhand Tobacco Smoke Exposure and Dose in Children and Adults.
JOEM 48: 181-194 2006.
I have been a casino dealer for over 20 years now and have watched as many of my non-smoking friends have died from cancer.
There are even more who have not died, but have been treated for various cancers.
All the while the casinos turn a blind eye and continue to pass out free tobacco products to the customers who are smoking less than 3 feet from my breathing space and blowing their smoke in my face.
I admit, I am a smoker.
But when I smoke, I do so when I choose to do so.
I do not smoke with every breath I take, nor through my nose and eyes.
I would like to quit smoking, but every day when I go into work my employer forces me to smoke throughout my shift.
This is like an alcoholic who wants to stop drinking, but their employer forces them to consume alcohol all day at work.
How do they quit?
I face the same dilemna.
Electronic Cigarettes could be an answer.
I have only worked in the casino for 2 years, and as a non-smoker have started experiences symptoms of a smoker.
I am appalled at the smoking situation, and can only compare it to asbestos.
Asbestos is PROVEN to cause asbestosis, lung cancer, mesothelioma, and digestive system cancers.
The Environmental Protection Agency EPA was required by the Clear Air Act to produce regulations to regulate air pollutants hazardous to health.
These are called the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants.
Asbestos is one of these and regulating it was delegated to the Department.
Well, CIGERATTE SMOKE AND SECOND HAND SMOKE ARE PROVEN TO CAUSE LUNG CANCER AND OTHER ILLNESSES.
Why is it taken so long for the EPA to do something about it???
The smoke is one of the worst parts of the job to endure.
I constantly have teary eyes, headaches, and even get a cough from the smoke I am forced to deal with at work.
It should be illegal to smoke inside any building and the casinos should be held liable for any and all possible future ailments relating to the environment we are forced to work in.
I applaud your efforts to inform the public of these hazards we endure.
I hope it will bring about changes in the future.
We all deserve the right to breath clean air.
I have worked as a dealer in one of the casinos tested for almost 30 years.
When I started, I ran min-marathons and was an active athlete.
Today, I have serious bronchial asthma which I take 3 different medications for and miss work due to the smoke irritating my throat and lungs.
I have a chronic cough.
We have been told we cannot fan the smoke away from us even though there are players that blatantly blow it in our more info and violations can result in written documentation or termination.
There are chip racks with fans available but management has not seen fit to even get those for us, much less the fans mentioned in the first post on this blog.
Why is my health less important than everyone else in this country?
I know of over 50 people that have worked with me that have contracted cancer—most died!
The respiratory problems are off the chart!
Can you imagine the savings in health care?
With this report and the employees getting fed up — I can see many lawsuits coming!
I have been a casino dealer for over 30 years.
I have a spot on my lung which I get checked every year to determine whether there is any growth.
So far, so good.
It is the only horrible part of the job breathing in second hand smoke which is usually blown directly into the dealers face by disgruntled players.
Fans, can change the atmosphere of the whole casino.
Casinos seem to be special parties and link mindless exemptions from the smoking bans.
A properly trained and conscientious firefighter would never think of entering into a similar smoke-filled environment without airway protection.
In the introductory post for this blog topic, Lt.
Please provide citations to permit interested readers of this blog to learn when and in what context this NIOSH policy was initially established in a formal manner by NIOSH and when and in what context it was most recently reaffirmed in a formal manner by NIOSH.
Current Intelligence Bulletins CIBs are issued by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Centers macau and casinos Disease Control and Prevention to disseminate new scientific information about occupational hazards, draw attention to a formerly unrecognized hazard, report new data on a known hazard, or disseminate information on hazard control.
Now that the NIOSH report is out, Smoke-Free Gaming is working aggressively to get more casino employees and casino patrons gamblers on board to get casinos smoke free.
We have learned that the health of the employees, whose health is gravely compromised from breathing secondhand smoke air pollution is of little or no concern to their employer.
Because casino management is known to fire them at will!
BUT, casinos listen to their customers so that is why we are doing all we can to get the gamblers who hate the smoke to join in our efforts.
Professional gamblers are mostly non smokers.
They are the ones who complained about the smoke and that is why the World Series of Poker, the World Poker Tour, etc.
We even have an online petition for employees, gamblers and everyone else to sign.
We hope the NIOSH report will be a tool for legal pursuits, more no-smoking policies and more clean indoor air laws.
This is a health issue!
Breathing is not a choice!
My wife and I went to the name removed casino in Conn 6 weeks ago.
I am an asthmatic, have been all my life.
We enjoy gambling there.
We usually go twice a year.
We stay in the so called no smoking room to gamble.
This last time we went,in order to pick up your car when you leave there, you have to go through a large smoking room.
I nearly died walking through this room, must have taken me 3 or 4 minutes.
By the time I got to the end, exit where the cars are, I was breathless, couldnt breath.
From that experience, I developed Chronic Bronchitis, and saw my doctor three times for medication, nebulizer and other lung help.
I was disabled with this Chronic Bronchitis for 6 weeks and am just starting to feel normal.
As much as I love the casinos, I am deathly afraid of returning to one.
I refuse to go through that nightmare again.
In my opinion, they should not allow smoking in any of those casinos.
Its like a slow death in there.
Casino workers face a higher risk of heart disease and lung cancer because they work in buildings filled with tobacco smoke.
You had to do a study with tax dollars to determine that casino dealers were exposed to second hand smoke?
Give us a break.
What happened to the land of the free?
W and the T.
U to work out a solution.
There must be a way to protect both health and revenue.
Large smoke free areas, better ventilation with Union inspectionall bronchial illnesses 100% covered with paid sick leave would be a good start.
There is no denying that both smoking and secondhand smoke are unhealthy.
However, having said that what about choice?
Casino employees choose of their own free will whether or not to work a casino.
Perhaps that is the highest paying job in the area which does not require a college education or skilled trade however that is still their choice; accept a lower paying job, move to another area or get an education.
Last time I check this was still a free country where we choose our own destiny.
Nobody is forced to work or gamble in a smoky casino environment.
Casinos are a choice not a necessity!
It should be up to the owner of the establishment to decide whether or not to become smoke free.
We all have the freedom to choose and must live the repercussions of our decisions.
I have worked in a casino in Nevada for just over 2 years now.
Since I have started we have had approx.
This seems to be a very high number.
Also, we have had many illnesses as well.
This needs to be checked out.
Although we have not been able to speak with you to obtain more information about the employees with cancer and their exposures, the following information about occupational cancer clusters may be helpful to you.
A cancer cluster is an unusual concentration of cancer cases in a defined area or time.
In the United States, one in two men and one in three women will develop cancer over the course of their lifetime.
We also look to see whether cancer is occurring among employees in particular jobs or areas of the workplace.
Persons occupationally exposed to secondhand smoke are at risk of developing lung cancer, cardiovascular illness, and respiratory health effects.
As a result, NIOSH recommends eliminating casino health and safety use in the workplace.
Latency periods vary by cancer type, but usually are 15 to 20 years, or longer.
Because of this, past exposures are more relevant than current exposures as potential causes of cancers occurring in workers today.
If you or your coworkers have been diagnosed with an illness potentially associated with exposure to secondhand smoke, you may casino health and safety to share our report with a health care provider and discuss the section of the report that documents the presence of a lung carcinogen over a work shift and reported respiratory health effects in the casino dealers.
Only a health care provider familiar with your or your coworkers specific medical and work history can make a determination as to whether an illness you are affected with is work-related.
For more information about occupational cancer and cancer cluster evaluations on the NIOSH website at.
You can also find information published by the National Cancer Institute about health effects related to exposure to secondhand smoke, at and casino health and safety right! zebra and tunnel slot canyon confirm U.
I hear the only cause for cancer according to fellow posters is cigarettes.
These casinos are on a very congested street, where it took 12 an hour to pass 1 casino.
Scary what smokers taxes are paying for, no wonder contraband is not being seen as a crime; if this is science that the taxes are paying for.
PS: No mention that NNAL comes from potatoes, tomatoes, grain, eggplant; how do they account for that confounder?
Cool Blog, oddly enough I had read a article from september fourth two thousand and four that was remarkably similar to your post.
John and Sharon must be smokers.
I work in a casino and hate being expost to nasty stinky smoke.
I have been a casino dealer for a few years now in Detroit and I am hearing about this new cigarette that is going to be mandatory called the FSC Cigarette.
According to the website, these new cigarettes have more harmful chemical byproducts in them that make the cigarettes go out by themselves and also create more toxins in the smoke.
Does the government not realize that implementing these procedures not only affect smokers, but people exposed to second hand smoke as well!
I may be young, but being a casino dealer has always fasinated me.
However, losing a lung as not.
I fail to understand why a non-smoking environment is an issure.
Sure, you may lose your business with the smoking population, but may also gain a new population, of those who were hoping for a place to enjoy without worrying about having to involuntarily smoke.
Workers do have the free choice to work in a smoke filled environment, but it may be their best option available.
Make it easier on everyone and ban smoking.
Those who must, cant live without and will just absolutely die at the fact that they can not smoke for a few hours, can simply step outside, and come back in when they feel they can handle such pressure!
And when I was pregnant twice I was shocked how many people still blew the smoke straight in my face, regardless of being pregnant.
No remorse of these people!
You would think these casinos would put up a non-smoking sign at least for the pregnant people nope.
I pray everyday that someday in my lifetime the casinos will all go smoke free!!!
Please lets all work together to go smoke free, so we can all be healthy!!
Thank goodness Ohio is a smoke-free state.
We are soon adding a few casinos.
Pros and cons of casino impact on communities aside, at least those who work in the casinos will not be exposed to the numerous toxic chemicals and carcinogens in second-hand and side-stream smoke.
When our state went smoke-free there was the usual gnashing of teeth and dire predictions of hundreds of bars and restaurants going under and the state losing hundreds of thousands in tax revenue; none of which came to pass.
I do not smoke it is unhealthy and whenever I go to a casino there are always people standing next to me smoking when I want to place a bet on https://autoimg.ru/and/phoenix-casino-and-lounge-citrus-heights-ca.html roulette table, I wish there were 2 seperate rooms for which one is smokefree to play.
As a casino worker, I was wondering what rights do we have against second-hand smoke in an environment.
I have mixed feelings on this matter.
I can speak https://autoimg.ru/and/beavis-and-butthead-do-america-casino.html most my my co-workers who rely on allergy medicines and have beeb prescribed inhalers.
Note-all workers are in good shape, as is casino health and safety qualification to work in this field Quite frankly, this is very disappointing.
Personally, the field of expetise is food-serving.
It is very dificult to let go to a job you enjoy and has given me such sinority.
Looking at the posts on site-Rose working 22 years at Station casinos died of lung cancer.
I really do not want to be on of the statistics and would like to retire at the age of 65!
Just wanted to express my concern.
ANy suggestion is greatly appreciated.
Longstanding NIOSH policy, consistent with and read article on the U.
The most current U.
I would suggest contacting your local health department as a potential resource for information about smoking provisions in your area.
If you are experiencing health symptoms that you feel are related to your workplace, I recommend that you seek care from a health care provider who is trained in occupational medicine.
The owner even went as far to say to me that I was a young guy and I can handle it.
There were many situations were I had to cover my float and stop dealer during a game because I felt like passing out from all the smoke, and I was given warning letters for this.
That place was like hell for me to work.
Dear fellow libertarians, If there is one thing that we all ought to realize when talking about rights, it is this THERE ARE OFTEN CONFLICTS BETWEEN OPPOSING RIGHTS.
For example, what would you say to smokers, who have children, smoking in their own private homes?
Of-course, the child may not always complain and may even casino health and safety to early smoking.
Now, if nobody is complaining, there is no argument from rights, no question of conflict of rights.
We have to choose the right balance between opposing rights of different people keeping the larger picture in perspective — by trying to identify which things are gratuitous and which absolutely important good health, for example.
My husband is a dealer at one of the top casinos in Vegas.
There are those who say he should just find another job, but have they looked at the Las Vegas economy lately?
I have long thought that all indoor areas should ban smoking.
I even did a report on it in high school.
Why did our government let the casinos be exempt from the law that states smoking is illegal in enclosed public places?
I had perfect health up until the time I decided to take a job working in a casino.
Following such a dictum would indicate that restaurants and fast food outlets that cook food with methods other than microwaves or boiling over electric ranges should be required to do so in a separate building as ventilation can never provide complete protection.
In terms of workers actually engaged in cooking, special respirators should be required of course, even if management initially objects.
Moving beyond mere cooking concerns, workers should also clearly be protected from involuntary exposure to carcinogenic UV radiation while on the job.
Sun exposure is neither an inherent nor a necessary part of the dining experience, particularly not for the workers who might serve in waiting or cleaning operations in such areas.
I should hope that NIOSH applies their concerns fairly in these regards.
Indians Casinos are different soveriegn lands but Casinos in the US somehow one day will be subject to a major class action law suit with the knowledge of what we currently know of smoking and cigs.
Get a life smokers your lossers.
Those of you who dislike being in a casino with smoking in Las Vegas, or Atlantic City need to WRITE to the casino hotels!
The only way we will get rid of smoking in casinos is when the patrons request it.
If they can stop smoking in the pubs in Ireland, and elsewhere in Europe, we in the U.
Actually workers in casinos are prone to diseases because it has plenty of smokers smoking while gambling.
I have been working at a casino for the past 3 yrs and am concern about developing some form of cancer.
I make decent money and it would be almost impossible to find another job that pays this well.
We cannot tell you what your individual risk is for developing cancer as this is affected by many factors such as dose, intensity, duration of exposure and other non-tobacco related risk factors such as diet, physical activity, and genetics.
We encourage you to discuss your individual exposure risk profile with your health care provider and share concerns with your employer.
There is sufficient scientific evidence to conclude that populations involuntary exposed to tobacco smoke have an elevated risk of developing lung cancer, according to the 2006 U.
In addition, second hand smoke has immediate adverse effects on the cardiovascular system and respiratory tract.
Engineering approaches, including current and advanced dilution ventilation or air cleaning technologies should not be relied upon to control health risks from indoor tobacco smoke exposure.
The only means of effectively eliminating health risks associated with indoor tobacco smoke exposure is to ban smoking activity.
I have two sister-in-laws here in california that always have flu like illnesses.
Or at least look at your concern from a realistic perspective.
As a nonsmoker you have about 4 chances in a thousand of getting lung cancer.
According to the EPA Report, even in the poorly ventilated and smokey work conditions of the 1950s and 60s, your chances of eventually getting lung cancer after 40 straight years of work would only go up by about 19%: i.
I am wondering though if you have any specific comment on the measurements gathered in the NIOSH report that this blog entry concentrates on.
I will note below what the levels were measured at and then compare them to the OSHA type PELs Permissible Exposure Limits and TLVs Threshold Limit Values that are designed to ensure worker safety.
For example, sunshine and ethyl something quinault beach and casino have are both carcinogenic.
Similarly, although ethyl alcohol is highly volatile roughly 100,000,000 mcg evaporate from a single martini into the air workers breathe in a single hour the remedy does not seem to be eliminating alcoholic beverages from restaurants where families gather to eat healthy foods.
So I am puzzled by the concentration on tobacco smoke.
Can you clarify it play and spin tires me, or point out any errors in my numbers above or my reasoning?
The blog summarized findings and recommendations from a health hazard evaluation conducted at the request of workers at three casinos.

Although it sounds like a fun time to let loose and party, when you work at a casino, this chaos can quickly become hazardous. That is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specific safety guidelines especially for casinos and hotels attached to casinos.

Prevention training on safety at work To improve health and safety systems, the Group set up an employee feedback programme several years ago in France.
Its aim was to prevent occupational risks by allowing workers to voice their concerns about working conditions.
The risk prevention policy is set with the trade unions and within the framework of agreements specifying the objectives, the means of action and expected results for the prevention of psychosocial risks, health and safety in the workplace, and the prevention of arduous work.
Outside France, GPA and Éxito implement workplace accident prevention plans to identify major risks in the workplace as early as possible.
Improving well-being at work To improve the quality of life at work and the well-being of employees, action plans are rolled out in all Group entities.
In France, the Human Resources department initiated an awareness and training programme on caring management practices in 2014, with the support of the Executive Committee and the assistance of Dr Philippe Rodet, a medical expert in workplace well-being.
The programme is designed to increase employee motivation by reducing workplace stress.
These initiatives helped to raise the awareness of 4,200 managers through presentations by outside consultants.
A network of workplace well-being experts was established in 2015 to identify employees who might be experiencing difficulties, build relationships and direct them to the people who are best placed to help them.
The Group has implemented a telecommuting system to provide flexibility in the work organisation of some employees.
An agreement on telecommuting has been established within Casino IT teams and administrative teams on the Vitry site.
It offers flexible casino health and safety, as well as days of leave for personal or family activities or for graduations.
More than 12,530 days have been used, benefiting over 20,300 employees.
Since 2015, Éxito has measured the psychosocial risks to which employees may be exposed and introduced a pilot telecommuting programme for employees on administrative sites.
Its aim is to contribute to a better work-life balance.
Promoting awareness campaigns on major public health issues The Group organises https://autoimg.ru/and/beavis-and-butthead-do-america-casino.html days to raise employee awareness about major public health issues.
Other awareness-raising days were organised in 2016 to address the risk of diabetes, a major public health issue in France, with a medical team and casino health and safety Health, Safety and Working Conditions department.
Employees were able to assess their predisposition to diabetes, and ask questions to members of the French Federation of Diabetics.
Casino is also the first player to get French Federation of Diabetics food security approval for its range of sugar-free products.
Outside France, GPA continues to deploy health and nutritional awareness campaigns for its employees in its warehouses and at head office.
A rehabilitation centre was also click to see more in 2016.
It welcomes people on sick leave, offering them support from doctors, physiotherapists and other practitioners in their convalescence, and helping ease them back into the company.

I have been a casino dealer for over 20 years now and have watched as many of my non-smoking friends have died from cancer.
There are even more who have not died, but have been treated for various cancers.
All the while the casinos turn a blind eye and continue to pass out free tobacco products to the customers who are smoking less than 3 feet from my breathing space and blowing their smoke in my face.
I admit, I am a smoker.
But when I smoke, I do so when I choose to do so.
I do not smoke with every breath I take, nor through my nose and eyes.
I would like to quit smoking, but every day when I go into work my employer forces me to smoke throughout my shift.
This is like an alcoholic who wants to stop drinking, but their employer forces them to consume alcohol all day at work.
How do they quit?
I face the same dilemna.
Electronic Cigarettes could be an answer.
I have only worked in the casino for 2 years, and as a non-smoker have started experiences symptoms of a smoker.
I am appalled at the smoking situation, and can only compare it to asbestos.
Asbestos is PROVEN to cause asbestosis, lung cancer, mesothelioma, and digestive system cancers.
These are called the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants.
Asbestos is one of these and regulating it was delegated to the Department.
Well, CIGERATTE SMOKE AND SECOND HAND SMOKE ARE PROVEN TO CAUSE LUNG CANCER AND OTHER ILLNESSES.
Why is it taken so long for the EPA to do something about it???
The smoke is one of the worst parts of the job to endure.
I constantly have teary eyes, headaches, and even get a cough from the smoke I am forced to deal with at work.
It should be illegal to smoke inside any building and the casinos should be held liable for any and all possible future ailments relating casino health and safety the environment we are forced to work in.
I applaud your efforts to inform the public of these hazards we endure.
I hope it will bring about changes in the future.
We all deserve the right to breath clean air.
I have worked as a dealer in one of the casinos tested for almost 30 years.
When I started, I ran min-marathons and was an active athlete.
Today, I have serious bronchial asthma which I take 3 https://autoimg.ru/and/casinos-18-and-up-in-sacramento.html medications for and miss work due to the smoke irritating my throat and lungs.
I have a chronic cough.
We have been told we cannot fan the smoke away from us even though there are players that blatantly blow it in our face and violations can result in written documentation or termination.
There are chip racks with fans available but management has not seen fit to even get those for us, much less the fans mentioned in the first post on this blog.
Why is my health less important than everyone else in this country?
I know of over 50 people that have worked with me that have contracted cancer—most died!
The respiratory problems are off the chart!
Can you imagine the savings in health care?
With this report and the employees getting fed up — I can see many lawsuits coming!
I have been a casino dealer for over 30 years.
I have a spot on my lung which I get checked every year to determine whether there is any growth.
So far, so good.
It is the only horrible part of the job breathing in second hand smoke which is usually blown directly into the dealers face by disgruntled players.
Fans, can change the atmosphere of the whole casino.
Casinos seem to be special parties and receive mindless exemptions from the smoking bans.
A properly trained and conscientious firefighter would never think of entering into a similar smoke-filled environment without airway protection.
In the introductory post for this blog topic, Lt.
Please provide citations to permit interested readers of this blog to learn when and in what context this NIOSH policy was initially established in a formal manner by NIOSH and when and in what context it was most recently reaffirmed in a formal manner by NIOSH.
Current Intelligence Bulletins CIBs are issued by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to disseminate new scientific information about occupational hazards, draw attention to a formerly unrecognized hazard, report new data on a known hazard, or disseminate information on hazard control.
Now that the NIOSH report is out, Smoke-Free Gaming is working aggressively to get more casino employees and casino patrons check this out on board to get casinos smoke free.
We have learned that the health of the employees, whose health is gravely compromised from breathing secondhand smoke air pollution is of little or no concern to their employer.
Because casino management is known to fire them at will!
BUT, casinos listen to their customers so that source why we are doing all we can to get the gamblers who hate the smoke to join in our efforts.
Professional gamblers are mostly non smokers.
They are the ones who complained about the smoke and that is why the World Series of Poker, the World Poker Tour, etc.
We even have an online petition for employees, gamblers and everyone else to sign.
We hope the NIOSH report will be a tool for legal pursuits, more no-smoking policies and more clean indoor air laws.
This is a health issue!
Breathing is not a choice!
My wife and I went to the name removed casino in Conn 6 weeks ago.
I am an asthmatic, have been all my life.
We enjoy gambling there.
We stay in the so called no smoking room to gamble.
This last time we went,in order to pick up your car when you leave there, you have to go through a large smoking room.
I nearly died walking through this room, must have taken me 3 or 4 minutes.
By the time I got to the end, exit where the cars are, I was breathless, couldnt breath.
From that experience, I developed Chronic Bronchitis, and saw my doctor three times for medication, nebulizer and other lung help.
I was disabled with this Chronic Bronchitis for 6 weeks and am just starting to feel normal.
As much as I love the casinos, I am deathly afraid of returning to one.
I refuse to go through that nightmare again.
In my opinion, they should not allow smoking in any of those casinos.
Its like a slow death in there.
Casino workers face a higher risk of heart disease and lung cancer because they work in buildings filled with tobacco smoke.
You had to do a study with tax dollars to determine that casino dealers were exposed to second hand smoke?
Give us a break.
What happened to free online talk and text land of the free?
W and the T.
U to work out a solution.
There must be a way to protect both health and revenue.
Large smoke free areas, better ventilation with Union inspectionall bronchial illnesses 100% covered with paid sick leave would be a good start.
There is no denying that both smoking and secondhand smoke are unhealthy.
However, having said that what about choice?
Casino employees choose of their own free will whether or not to work a casino.
Perhaps that is the highest paying job in the area which does not require a college education or skilled trade however that is still their choice; accept a lower paying job, move to another area or get an education.
Last time I check this was still a free country where we choose our own destiny.
Nobody is forced to work or gamble in a smoky casino environment.
Casinos are a choice not a necessity!
It should be up to the owner of the establishment to decide whether or not to become smoke free.
We all have the freedom to choose and must live the repercussions of our decisions.
I have worked in a casino in Nevada for just over 2 years now.
Since I have started we have had approx.
This seems to be a very high number.
Also, we have had many illnesses as well.
This needs to be checked out.
Although we have not been able to speak with you to obtain more information about the employees with cancer and their exposures, the following information about occupational cancer clusters may be helpful to you.
A cancer cluster is an unusual concentration of cancer cases in a defined area or time.
In the United States, one in two men and one in three women will develop cancer over the course of their lifetime.
We also look to see whether cancer is occurring among employees in particular jobs or areas of the workplace.
Persons occupationally exposed to secondhand smoke are at risk of developing lung cancer, cardiovascular illness, and respiratory health effects.
As a result, NIOSH recommends eliminating tobacco use in the workplace.
Latency periods vary by cancer type, but usually are 15 to 20 years, or longer.
Because of this, past exposures are more relevant than current exposures as potential causes of cancers occurring in workers today.
If you or your coworkers have been diagnosed with an illness potentially associated with exposure to secondhand smoke, you may wish to share our report with a health care provider and discuss the section of the report that documents the presence of a lung carcinogen over a work shift and reported respiratory health effects in the casino dealers.
Only a health care provider familiar with your or your coworkers specific medical and work history can make a determination as to whether an illness you are affected with is work-related.
For more information about occupational cancer and cancer cluster evaluations on the NIOSH website at.
You can also find information published by the National Cancer Institute about health effects related to exposure to secondhand smoke, at and in the U.
I hear the only cause for cancer according to fellow posters is cigarettes.
These casinos are on a very congested street, where it took 12 an hour to pass 1 casino.
Scary what smokers taxes are paying for, casino health and safety wonder contraband is not being seen as a crime; if this is science that the taxes are paying for.
PS: No mention that NNAL comes from potatoes, tomatoes, grain, eggplant; how do they account for that confounder?
Cool Blog, oddly enough I had read a article from september fourth two thousand and four that was remarkably similar to your post.
John and Sharon must be smokers.
I work in a casino and hate being expost to nasty stinky smoke.
I have been a casino dealer for a few years now in Detroit and I am hearing about this new cigarette that is going to be mandatory called the FSC Cigarette.
According to the website, these new cigarettes have more harmful chemical byproducts in them that make the cigarettes go out by themselves and also create more toxins in the smoke.
Does the government not realize that implementing these procedures not only affect smokers, but people exposed to second hand smoke as well!
I may be young, but being a casino dealer has always fasinated me.
However, losing a lung as not.
I fail to understand why a non-smoking environment is an issure.
Sure, you may lose your business with the smoking population, but may also gain a new population, of those who were hoping for a place to enjoy without worrying about having to involuntarily smoke.
Workers do have the free choice to work in a smoke filled environment, but it may be their best option available.
Make it easier on everyone and ban smoking.
Those who must, cant live without and will just absolutely die at the fact that they can not smoke for a few hours, can simply step outside, and come back in when they feel they can handle such pressure!
And when I was pregnant twice I was shocked how many people still blew the smoke straight in my face, regardless of being pregnant.
No remorse of these people!
You would think these casinos would put up a non-smoking sign at least for the pregnant people nope.
I pray everyday that someday in my lifetime the casinos will all go smoke free!!!
Please lets all work together to go smoke free, so we can all be healthy!!
Thank goodness Ohio is a smoke-free state.
We are soon adding a few casinos.
Pros and cons of casino impact on communities aside, at least those who work in the casinos will not be exposed to the numerous toxic chemicals and carcinogens in second-hand and side-stream smoke.
When our state went smoke-free there was the usual gnashing of teeth and dire predictions of hundreds of bars and restaurants going under and the state losing hundreds of thousands in tax revenue; none of which came to pass.
I do not smoke it is unhealthy and whenever Article source go to a casino there are always people standing next to me smoking when I want to place a bet on the roulette table, I wish there were 2 seperate rooms for which one is smokefree to play.
As a casino worker, I was wondering what rights do we have against second-hand smoke in an environment.
I have mixed feelings on this matter.
I can speak for most my my co-workers who rely on allergy medicines and have beeb prescribed inhalers.
Note-all workers are in good shape, as is a qualification to work in this field Quite frankly, this is very disappointing.
Personally, the field of expetise is food-serving.
It is very dificult to let go to a job you enjoy and has given me such sinority.
Looking at the posts on site-Rose working 22 years at Station casinos died of lung cancer.
I really do not want to be on of the statistics and would like to retire at the age casino 18 and over 65!
Just wanted to express my concern.
ANy suggestion is greatly appreciated.
Longstanding NIOSH policy, consistent with and based on the U.
The most current U.
I would suggest contacting your local health department as a potential resource for information about smoking provisions in your area.
If you are experiencing health symptoms that you feel are related to your workplace, I recommend that you seek care from a health care provider who is trained in occupational medicine.
The owner even went as far to say to me that I was a young guy and I can handle it.
There were many situations were I had to cover my float and stop dealer during a game because I felt like passing out from all the smoke, and I was given warning letters for this.
That place was like hell for me to work.
Dear fellow libertarians, If there is one thing that we all ought to realize when talking about rights, it is this THERE ARE OFTEN CONFLICTS BETWEEN OPPOSING RIGHTS.
For example, what would you say to smokers, who have children, smoking in their own private homes?
Of-course, the child may not always complain and may even take to early smoking.
Now, if nobody is complaining, there is no argument from rights, no question of conflict of rights.
We have to choose the right balance between opposing rights of different continue reading keeping the larger picture in perspective — by trying to identify which things are gratuitous and which absolutely important good health, for example.
My husband is a dealer at one of the top casinos in Vegas.
There are those who say he should just find another job, but have they looked at the Las Vegas economy lately?
I have long thought that all indoor areas should ban smoking.
I even did a report on it in high school.
Why did our government let the casinos be exempt from the law that states smoking is illegal in enclosed public places?
I had perfect health up until casino health and safety time I decided to take a job working in a casino.
Following such a dictum would indicate that restaurants and fast food outlets that cook food with methods other than microwaves or boiling over electric ranges should be required to do so in a separate building as ventilation can never provide complete protection.
In terms of workers actually engaged in cooking, special respirators should be required of course, even if management initially objects.
Moving beyond mere cooking concerns, workers should also clearly be protected from involuntary exposure to carcinogenic UV radiation while on the job.
Sun exposure is neither an inherent nor a necessary part of the dining experience, particularly not for the workers who might serve in waiting or cleaning operations in such areas.
I should hope that NIOSH applies their concerns fairly in these regards.
Indians Casinos are different soveriegn lands but Casinos in the US somehow one day will be subject to a major class action law suit with the knowledge of what we currently know of smoking and cigs.
Get a life smokers your lossers.
Those of you who dislike being in a casino with smoking in Las Vegas, or Atlantic City need to WRITE to the casino hotels!
The only way we will get rid of smoking in casinos is when the patrons request it.
If they can stop smoking in the pubs in Ireland, and elsewhere in Europe, we in the U.
Actually workers in casinos are prone to diseases because it has plenty of smokers smoking while gambling.
I have been working at a casino for the past 3 yrs and am concern about developing some form of cancer.
I make decent money and it would be almost impossible to find another job that pays this well.
We cannot tell you what your individual risk is for developing cancer as this is affected by many factors such as dose, intensity, duration of exposure and other non-tobacco related risk factors such as diet, physical activity, and genetics.
We encourage you to discuss your individual exposure risk profile with your health care provider and share concerns with your employer.
There is sufficient scientific evidence to conclude that populations involuntary exposed to tobacco smoke have an elevated risk of developing lung cancer, according to the 2006 U.
In addition, second hand smoke has immediate adverse effects on the cardiovascular system and respiratory tract.
Engineering approaches, including current and advanced dilution ventilation or air cleaning technologies should not be relied upon to control health risks from indoor tobacco smoke exposure.
The only means of effectively eliminating health risks associated with indoor tobacco smoke exposure is to ban smoking activity.
I have two sister-in-laws here in california that always have flu like illnesses.
Or at least look at your concern from a realistic perspective.
As a nonsmoker you have about 4 chances in a thousand of getting lung cancer.
According to the EPA Report, even in the poorly ventilated and smokey work conditions of the 1950s and 60s, your chances of eventually getting lung cancer after 40 straight years of work would only go up by about 19%: i.
I am wondering though if you have any specific comment on the measurements gathered in the NIOSH report that this blog entry concentrates on.
I will note below what the levels were measured at and then compare them to the OSHA type PELs Permissible Exposure Limits and TLVs Threshold Limit Values that are designed to ensure worker safety.
For example, sunshine and ethyl alcohol are both carcinogenic.
Similarly, although ethyl alcohol is highly volatile roughly 100,000,000 mcg evaporate from a single martini into the air workers breathe in a single hour the remedy does not seem to be eliminating alcoholic beverages from restaurants where families gather to eat healthy foods.
So I am puzzled by the concentration on tobacco smoke.
Can you clarify it for me, or point out any errors in my numbers above or my reasoning?
The blog summarized findings and recommendations from a health hazard evaluation conducted at the request of workers at three casinos.

Please discuss this issue on the article's.
January 2019 There are continue reading issues in the industry.
The most common are from resulting from exposure to second-hand smoke, and MSI from while running table games over many hours.
They must renew this certification every 5 years.
These rules are in place to prevent workplace hazards, injuries, and deaths which have occurred during performances.
The NIOSH conducts free workplace HHE under 29 U.
NIOSH has evaluated casinos in the United States regarding employee exposure tonoise, and metal coin dust.
Second hand smoke contains 700 chemicals that are known to cause cancer.
The determined in 2006 that exposure to second hand smoke is not safe at any level as smoke cannot be filtered by ventilation systems and separate "no smoking" areas do not keep smoke out.
More typically, the heating and casino health and safety systems distribute smoke throughout the building, rather than removing it.
Employees working in casinos have historically had higher levels of more info to nicotine than other employees in the United States who reported exposure to jack the beanstalk free machine hand smoke.
In 1995, NIOSH evaluated non-smoking casino workers who worked in casinos that allowed smoking.
The study found that these workers were exposed to elevated levels of nicotine in the air.
The ACGIH publishes Threshold Limit Values TLVs for chemical and physical agents as well as Biological Exposure Indices BEIs each year that establishes a maximum exposure recommendation based on current scientific knowledge.
As of 2018, the ACGIH recommends employees not be exposed to an eight-hour TWA of more than 0.
The investigators also took urine samples of the workers to estimate the internal dose the workers were absorbing and found they had blood a metabolite of nicotine levels of 1.
NIOSH monitored employees working in both "smoking" and "non-smoking" sections of the casino and found elevated levels of exposure in both, as measured in the article source externally and in the worker's blood internally.
While all areas measured were above the recommended exposure limit, the highest concentrations were found at the poker tables.
The national average at the time for non-smokers exposed in their work or home was 0.
As a result of this study, NIOSH recommended that employees not be involuntarily exposed to smoke in the workplace.
However, NIOSH is only a research agency and their recommendations do not have the force of law or ability to force employers to comply.
Studies in casinos before and after smoking bans were enacted showed a decrease of 85-95% in cancer causing agents.
Based on these studies, NIOSH expanded its recommendation to make casinos in the United States 100% smoke free in 2009.
NIOSH has conducted https://autoimg.ru/and/pokerstars-spin-and-go.html noise evaluation of a casino in 2003, but did not find any evidence that noise in that casino was loud enough to put employees at risk of hearing loss.
As a preventative measure going forward, NIOSH recommended that noise levels be reevaluate whenever a new piece of equipment is installed or whenever employees express concerns about the noise level.
NIOSH generally recommends that such noise assessments be conducted on the busiest nights of the week or whenever the noise is likely to be loudest as that is the time of greatest risk to workers and patrons.
The 8 hour TLV for sound is 85 A-weighted dBA.
Exposure at or below this level of sound is expected to protect most workers from noise induced hearing loss over a 40-year career.
OSHA also a 5 dBA exchange allowing this to increase to 100 dBA for 4 hours of work or decrease to 85 dBA when working a 16-hour shift.
Casino workers were generally found to be exposed to an 8-hr TWAs noise level of 76.
Another key takeaway of the noise evaluation of the casino was that the highest noise detected was in the children's arcade with levels reaching 78 — 84 dBA.
NIOSH evaluated casino health and safety air and employees forcopper, and zinc because these metals make up the vast majority of modern US coins.
Studies of casino shift workers have found increased emotional and behavioral problems in their children as well as a six-times higher rate of divorce in men with children who have been married less than 5 years.
Women with children were also three times more likely to get divorced while performing shift work at casinos.
However, there was no increased rate of divorce in couples without children who performed shift work at casinos.
A 2012 study by the Kansas Health Institute recommended that casinos try to minimize this risk by keeping each worker on a consistent shift, rather than rotating them between days and nights.
It stated that if shift rotation must occur, it is better to rotate employees forward from day into evening shifts.
An increased frequency of breast cancer of 35% has also been found in women who work night shifts.
The repeated lifting and reaching needed to successfully run table games may lead to MSI.
Musculoskeletal injuries in casino workers are most common in the upper extremity, back, and legs.
A table with a softer edge for the dealer to lean against will decrease nerve compression in the upper extremity.
In casinos, most commonly occur in preparation or delivery of foods, beverages, or oils since liquid or steam at only 155° Fahrenheit can burn or scald the skin.
Emotions can run high during gambling and this combined with alcohol which is often provided for free while playing can lead patrons to become aggressive and agitated toward the staff or other players, potentially leading to and.
They are also known casino health and safety be at higher risk for, and than the average person.

Please consider expanding the lead to of all important aspects of the article.
Please discuss this issue on the article's.
January 2019 There are unique issues in the industry.
The most common are from resulting from exposure to second-hand smoke, and MSI from while running table casino health and safety over many hours.
As of January 1, 2018, workers in Nevada have a 10-hour training course on these subject they must complete within 15 days of being hired.
They must renew this certification every 5 years.
These rules are in place to prevent workplace hazards, injuries, and deaths which have occurred during performances.
The NIOSH conducts free workplace HHE under 29 U.
NIOSH has evaluated casinos in the United States regarding employee exposure tonoise, and metal coin dust.
Second hand smoke contains 700 chemicals that are known to cause cancer.
The determined in 2006 that exposure to second hand smoke is not safe at any level as smoke cannot be filtered by ventilation systems and separate "no smoking" areas do not keep smoke out.
More typically, the heating and cooling systems distribute smoke throughout the building, rather than removing it.
Employees working in casinos have historically had higher levels of exposure to nicotine than other employees in the United States who reported exposure to second hand smoke.
In 1995, NIOSH evaluated non-smoking casino workers who worked in casinos that allowed smoking.
The study found that these workers were exposed to elevated levels of nicotine in the air.
The ACGIH publishes Threshold Limit Values TLVs for chemical and physical agents as well as Biological Exposure Indices BEIs each year that establishes a maximum exposure recommendation based on current scientific knowledge.
As of 2018, the ACGIH recommends employees not be exposed to an eight-hour TWA of more than 0.
The investigators also took urine samples of the workers to estimate the internal dose the workers were absorbing and found casino health and safety had blood a metabolite of nicotine levels of 1.
NIOSH monitored employees working in both "smoking" and "non-smoking" sections of check this out casino and found elevated levels of exposure in both, as measured in the air externally and in the worker's blood internally.
While all areas measured were above the recommended exposure limit, the highest concentrations were found at the poker tables.
The national average at the time for non-smokers exposed in their work or home was 0.
As a result of this study, NIOSH recommended that employees not be involuntarily exposed to smoke in the workplace.
However, NIOSH is casino health and safety slots amulet starve and dont backpack mod research agency and their recommendations do not have the force of law or ability to force employers to comply.
Studies in casinos before and after smoking bans were enacted showed a decrease of 85-95% in cancer causing agents.
Based on these studies, NIOSH expanded its recommendation to make casinos in the United States 100% smoke free in 2009.
NIOSH has conducted one noise evaluation of a casino in 2003, but did not find any evidence that noise in that casino was loud enough to put employees at risk of hearing loss.
As a preventative measure going forward, NIOSH recommended that noise levels be reevaluate whenever a new piece of equipment is installed or whenever employees express concerns about the noise level.
NIOSH generally recommends that such noise assessments be conducted on the busiest nights of the week or whenever the noise is likely to be loudest as that is the time of greatest risk to workers and patrons.
The 8 hour TLV for sound is 85 A-weighted dBA.
Exposure at or below this level of sound is expected to protect most workers from noise induced hearing loss over a 40-year career.
OSHA also a 5 dBA exchange allowing this to increase to 100 dBA for 4 hours of work or decrease to 85 casino health and safety when working a 16-hour shift.
Casino workers were generally found to be exposed to an 8-hr TWAs noise level of 76.
Another key takeaway of the noise evaluation of the casino was that the highest noise detected was in the children's arcade with levels reaching 78 — 84 dBA.
NIOSH evaluated the air and employees forcopper, and zinc because these metals make up the vast majority of modern US coins.
Studies of casino shift workers have found increased emotional and behavioral problems in their children as well as a six-times higher rate of divorce in men with children who have casino health and safety married less than 5 years.
Women with children were also three times more likely to get divorced while performing shift work at casinos.
However, there was no increased rate of divorce in couples without children who performed shift work at casinos.
A 2012 study by the Kansas Health Institute recommended that casinos try to minimize this risk by keeping each worker on a consistent shift, rather than rotating them between days and nights.
It stated that if shift rotation must occur, it is better to rotate employees forward from day into evening shifts.
An increased frequency of breast cancer of 35% has also been found in women who work night shifts.
The repeated lifting and reaching needed to successfully run table games casino health and safety lead to MSI.
Musculoskeletal injuries in casino workers are most common in the upper extremity, back, and legs.
A table with a softer edge for the dealer to lean against will decrease nerve compression in the upper extremity.
In casinos, most commonly occur in preparation or delivery of foods, beverages, or oils since liquid or steam at only 155° Fahrenheit can burn or scald the skin.
Emotions can run high during gambling and this combined with alcohol which is often provided for free casino health and safety playing can lead patrons to become aggressive and agitated toward the staff or other players, potentially leading to and.
They are also known to be at higher risk for, and than the average person.
