Did you know that in order for a disease to be attributed to an industrial injury, the Secretary of State for the Department for Work and Pensions needs to agree that there is evidence that the injury or disease is a risk of a specific occupation and that the related risk can be confirmed with a sufficient level of certainty. This means that industrial injuries in Manchester can only be attributed to the workers in an occupation if the risk of getting the disease is higher than is usual in the general public. Examples of such industrial injuries include the development of cataracts in the eyes due to radiation exposure, or osteoarthritis in the knees of coal miners.
