I began a new job about a month ago working in meat production. I'm around a large smoker on an almost daily basis. We smoke all types of meat and cheeses. Before I started I didn't have any sinus trouble at all...no stuffy nose, no mucous, nothing. Now I have a stuffy nose most of the time and my nose runs often...even on my days off. The smoker fumes burn my eyes. The fumes only last several minutes...when they bring meats in and out. I've noticed the people that have been there for years all have sinus issues.
This is a temporary job...only until Christmas...then I'm done.
Should I be concerned that this exposure will cause damage long term or will I be OK after 3 months of exposure?
