Mountain Ash accident at work compensation

0

Here at Accident Advice Helpline we handle numerous Mountain Ash accident at work compensation claims every year for a wide variety of injuries sustained in a wide variety of industry sectors and occupations.

Why injuries and illnesses of views through the same looking glass

One of the most common injuries we come across is an asthma injury; although many people look on this as an illness rather than an injury. However the end result is the same; i.e. a debilitating injury, and one that if it is blamed on an employer, means that the illness or injury victim is entitled to financial compensation.

The most hazardous industries in terms of risk of occupational related asthma

There are certain occupations and industries that are more hazardous in terms of occupational related asthma. These include:

  • The agricultural industry
  • The baking industry
  • The engineering industry
  • The healthcare sector
  • Laboratory animal workers
  • Soldering
  • The woodworking industry
  • Vehicle spray paint plants or workshops

In terms of asthma risk, significant improvements can be made to workplaces relatively easily; changes that can make them safer places to work in. In this context everyone has some sort of role to play, whether we are talking about the employers, the employees, government intervention, or the industry, and the trade unions; everyone can contribute and should do so.

The typical symptoms of asthma 

Asthma is a serious illness that affects thousands of people here in the UK. Symptoms include shortness of breath, (sometimes very severe), tightness of the chest, wheezing, and coughing.

Incidences of how and when symptoms manifest this can vary. With some people in the workplace, association is instant. With other people however, symptoms sometimes don’t develop until several hours after the exposure; often at night. This makes it much more difficult to associate with being an occupationally related illness.

Mountain Ash accident at work compensation claims for occupational related asthma

Most cases of occupational asthma are a result of an allergic reaction to various substances in the workplace atmosphere; substances such as flour or wood dust for example. These allergens are referred to as being “respiratory sensitizers” or asthmagens. They bring about a restriction to people’s airways, otherwise known as putting victims into a hypersensitive state.

It is not always a foregone conclusion that this hypersensitivity will lead to asthma. However it often does, and once hypersensitivity develops, it can be triggered by very low levels of allergens. Anyone suffering from occupational related asthma can launch a Mountain Ash accident at work compensation claim via Accident Advice Helpline.
