Industrial Disease

In most cases of industrial disease, it tends to result from long-term exposure to a substance or as a direct result of working conditions over an extended period of time. All employers have a duty of care to ensure that their employees are working in satisfactory conditions and that all aspects of relevant health and safety guidelines are being followed and adhered to.

Industrial disease can appear in many forms and in the more serious cases often result in death. Listed below are the most common forms of industrial disease experienced in the UK:

• Asbestos related disease
• Benezene Poisoning
• Diesel exhaust fumes
• Carbon Monoxide poisoning
• Chemical poisoning
• Dioxin poisoning
• Emphysema
• Farmers’ Lung
• Industrial deafness
• Mesothelioma
• Pleural thickening claims
• Pneumoconiosis
• Work related cancer

Most people suffering from industrial disease will not realise that their symptoms are attributable to their occupation for many years, or even recognise their symptoms at all. In some forms of asbestos related diseases, symptoms are rarely noticeable until the disease has reach final, and sadly untreatable, stages.
