Industrial diseases are conditions that adversely affect your health and the cause of the damage to your health is your working environment.

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.
Your employer may hold Employers Liability Insurance. This insurance covers your employer for personal injury claims if someone has develops an industrial disease due to their work environment. So, if you have developed one of the many types of industrial diseases, you should be able to claim for compensation.
