If you want to live a long and healthy life, don't work at Dana. One man has had a liver transplant, One has died with liver problems, another is waiting a liver transplant.All because of inhaling fumes from welding, especially aluminum welding. That stuff is poisionus.Most all the people who work there are white headed at 40 years old.Get outnow if it's not already too late. You widow women should get together and find you a good lawyer.

All the workers at DANA are so afraid of their jobs that they will not comment on what I just said. you are all pitiful.

Listen up fugly, I believe people are posting on the other dana thread, but to be honest I don't see how inhaling fumes is connected to liver disease.

inhaling dangerous fumes can be just as harmful to the liver as drinking alcohol or doing drugs.

The liver is the clearing house of the body. Any toxins taken in, whether inhaled or ingested, are cleared through the liver. Red blood cells are produced by the liver. Bone marrow can be affectedalso by inhalation of noxious fumes. OSH and TOSHA should be requiriing respirators if this is the case. But I suspect people are refusing to wear them and I suspect people are ignoring the regulations as well. More to the story than what is actually being posted. IF you suspect your workplace is making you sick, Call TOSHA or OSHA.

I suspect OSHA has been bought out by DANA.

Can't hurt to file a report..they have to investigate all complaints of workplace induced illnesses, or suspected violations.

I don't work at Dana and would not report anything about this to OSHA because the plant might might close if the issue is pressed. It is up to the people who work there to take care of the matter. I believe the National Labor Relations Board would not allow the plant to close if they were trying to correct this fault. They need the union to help them. If they were organized they could get this corrected.

Considering it's inspected every year and the fumes aren't over their allowed limit it won't be closed. And you named 3 people out of how many that has worked at Dana? If the fumes are that horrible there then there would be a lot more dying.

If fumes were the cause, 1 person is too many. Three or more people with the same health problem from the same plant is really suspicious. I'll bet that Dana had advance notice of the inspectons.

You act like Dana pumps out fumes into their faces at work or something. Your statement makes it seem like you're not too sure if the fumes are the cause or not, besides the fact you don't have any evidence that they are or not. It could be possible that 3 people just had bad livers and wasn't from aluminum fumes. I know one of the men you're talking about and he worked on a welder. He drove a fork lift and an aisle sweeper.

you are right i'm not too sure if the fumes caused the problem and I have no evidence. I'm just expressing my opinion. I have friends that work there but they are afraid to speak up for fear of losing their job. I don't think you would have to be a welder to be hurt by the fumes. I suppose they drift throughout the plant.

I work there too and I doubt you have friends that work there that are "afraid" to speak up. If they are then something must be wrong with them mentally. Very few fumes escape the welder and get throughout the plant because they have ventilation systems to suck the fumes up and into a "smoke hog."

Well I can't argue with you, you should know more about it than I do. If I worked there I would get a liver check at least annually. Several years ago there was talk about banning aluminun for cookware. It was believed to cause alzheimer's. I know several people that work there that sure don't look healthy.

They're probably suffering from common health problems for their age. Aluminum dust does have a slight chance to increase the risk of Alzheimer's but in today's age what doesn't have the chance to increase the chances of something no one wants? You need to tell whoever your friends are to speak up if they're having problems with something there, they can't be fired for it.

Also, the amount of dust inhaled from the aluminum welders in the entire building would be low. There's only three lines that run aluminum welders and all 3 have ventilation systems that suck up the majority of the dust. If the vents aren't working properly they can turn it into their line leader who can fill an order out for maintenance to fix it.

It's really not that big of a deal there. If people are having liver issues it's most likely something else than the aluminum dust. Like I said earlier, the one waiting on the transplant I know who that is and he never ran a welder from when I was there. He was always driving a fork lift until he started to drive the aisle sweeper, as for the guy that died from liver problems and the one that's already had a transplant I don't know anything about them I don't think. Unless you're saying the one that died in the cafeteria there a few years ago which wasn't a liver related death.

I never heard about the person dying in the cafeteria. I imagine Dana keeps all this quiet. They are like most all other big business' They don't care about the workers, if they die just hire some more. Just make a big profit for the company.

They didn't keep it quiet. People outside of Dana know about it. He died from a massive heart attack, though. Dana's actually pretty open about the health hazards for the jobs and any safety problems a job has. Every machine in there has a page for it that describes any health and safety hazards and if anyone finds one that's not on the page they're supposed to turn it in so it can be put on there. To be honest it seems like you're getting a lot of bad information about what goes on inside Dana. lol

If the persons sick, dying or whatever from liver disease found out they were sick and it was work related then they would have done sued Dana!!! People not that dumb in this forsaken county!! Hell a lawyer would have done contacted them pushing them to sue!?!?!
