    How to claim industrial asthma compensation


    Asthma is a medical condition that can potentially make it hard to breathe. In some cases it could potentially be caused by working in a specific environment that can trigger the illness. It is this latter situation that can lead people to try and claim industrial asthma compensation.

    You might also hear this condition referred to as occupational asthma. This means it is caused by conditions in the workplace, or substances that might be present that can cause problems with breathing. If someone already has asthma they may find the condition gets worse because of the place they work at.

    What can be done about cases of industrial asthma?

    Every employer has a responsibility towards everyone they employ. This means they must provide a workplace that is safe in every respect, and they must go through a series of risk assessments that highlight any potential dangers so they can be resolved. This should ensure the dangers can no longer present any kind of problem to anyone working there.

    Some workplaces do have hazardous substances present, perhaps because they are essential in producing a particular product or because they are needed at some other stage of the production process. This means handling and managing the use of these items should be done with great care. It also means there is less risk of anyone being made ill by exposure to such things.
