what are the health risks for sewage workers.

Response from Ms. Breuer

Surely there are people who could respond to this better than I, but I'll give it a start: contact with fecal material means it would be a great idea to get the vaccination for hepatitis A. Because of the possibility of blood contact, I'd add hepatitis B. Beyond that, please ask your local public health department. They're the best source of those vaccinations, too, unless your employer covers them as part of your job.
