Have you developed an industrial illness?
If you aren’t aware of the hidden dangers at your workplace, you could be at risk of developing an industrial illness. Although your employer should take steps to prevent anybody from becoming unwell, businesses don’t always do this.
If an error occurs or they don’t take their responsibility seriously, vast numbers of employees can become unwell and this can sometimes have serious, or even deadly, consequences.
Examples of industrial illness
Unfortunately, there are numerous examples of industrial illness. One of the most common relates to working with asbestos. Although people are more aware of the dangers now, working with asbestos did cause many people to become seriously unwell and, in some instances, people faced life-threatening illnesses as a result of exposure to this material.
Other examples of industrial illness include asthma, deep vein thrombosis, cumulative back injury, noise induced hearing loss, stress, dermatitis, poisoning and even multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome.
All of these types of illnesses can have a significant impact on your quality of life so you may need to take legal action if you’ve been affected by them. If you want to find out more about claiming compensation, or if you’re keen to access more examples of industrial illness, contact us today.
