An industrial disease personal injury is a damage to your health due to your working environment. Unlike an industrial accident, which happens quickly, the development of an industrial disease may take longer to show signs.

Under Health and Safety Regulations, your employers must take appropriate precautions to keep you safe. Indeed, by law, employers are responsible for the entire health and safety of their employees while at work or carrying out work related duties.
