Illness at work
When illness affects your work, it can cause additional stress. You may worry about your performance, your job role and even your job stability. However, in some instances, you may find that your work is actually causing you to become unwell.
If you’re forced to work in poor conditions or if your job role involves using dangerous materials, you could be at risk of developing an industrial illness.
Getting treatment for industrial illness
If you become unwell, for any reason, it’s important to seek medical help as soon as possible. This is particularly important when getting treatment for industrial illness. If your work is causing or contributing to your illness, continued exposure to the cause may make your illness worse.
Once you seek medical help, your doctors will be able to identify what it causing you to become unwell and you can receive the appropriate treatment for industrial illness.
What’s more – the sooner you determine what’s causing you to be unwell, the sooner it can be rectified. If your employer isn’t providing a safe place to work, for example, they can be held accountable and the workplace can be made safe for you and other employees.
Could you take legal action?
Once you’ve obtained medical treatment, you may begin to consider taking legal action against your employer. As your medical records will indicate the cause of your illness, it may be relatively easy for you to obtain compensation.
