    Predominantly an industrial town, Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire is home to the UK’s largest steel processing centre and is widely referred to as the “industrial garden town.” Due to the heavy presence of industrial workers, it is reasonable to assume that industrial diseases are widespread in the town.

    Types of industrial diseases

    Industrial diseases include, but are not limited to, the following diseases:

    • Asbestos-related diseases: Once used commercially for its desirable physical properties, asbestos fibres are now known to cause a range of serious health conditions, including lung cancer and inflammation of the lungs.
    • Non-asbestos-related diseases: The fine powders in paint and metals can cause serious respiratory diseases when inhaled, such as chronic obstructive airway disease. They pose an occupational hazard for spray painters, welders and metalworkers.
    • Hand arm vibration syndrome: This condition results from using vibrating equipment for long periods of time. Equipment such as drills, saws and road breakers are all linked to the condition. Sufferers may find it difficult to secure and retain employment in occupations that require manual dexterity as a result of this injury.
    • Skin diseases: Dermatitis is a common industrial skin disease caused by exposure to chemical irritants in the workplace. The condition is characterised by red, cracked, itchy and sore skin. Labourers are most at risk of developing this condition.
    • Hearing loss: In the UK, some 170,000 people are believed to be suffering from industrial hearing loss. Tinnitus is one of these hearing issues, which is characterised by annoying buzzing, humming or whistling noises in the ear.
