7:52 Minuten


Faces of Work-related COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder) is an impact video series of 4 videos:

  • What is Work-related COPD?
  • COPD and Work-related Exposure
  • COPD and Quality of Life
  • COPD - Minimizing the Risks

This video discusses ways to minimize the risks of getting work-related COPD through awareness of workplace exposures, reducing exposures using engineering controls and wearing personal protective equipment, and leading a healthy lifestyle.


While tobacco smoke is the most common exposure that causes COPD, it can also be caused by exposures in the workplace.



The Faces of Work-related COPD video series is part of a National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA), Respiratory Health Cross-Sector initiative. The Respiratory Health Cross-Sector is intended to identify research, information, and actions most urgently needed to prevent work-related respiratory disease and improve workers' respiratory health. The goal of these videos is to create awareness that COPD can be related to exposures in the workplace, the disease can have a devastating impact on workers and their families, and there are ways to minimize the risks of work-related COPD.
