Occupational Asthma & Respiratory Illness

Occupational Asthma & Respiratory Illness

If you suffer from asthma or some other respiratory illness, and believe that your working environment is to blame, you may be eligible to claim financial compensation, intended to help you cover the costs of medication and loss of earnings.

Occupational Asthma: Symptoms

If you work in an environment that contains high levels of dust, wood or otherwise, or flour, you may be at risk from work related or occupational asthma. Whilst such particles do not directly cause asthma, they do place the respiratory system in a hypersensitive state, making the individual more vulnerable to asthma attack.

If you are unsure of whether you have, or are vulnerable to occupational or work related asthma, speak to your doctor as soon as possible. The following is a list of common symptoms of asthma and other work related respiratory illnesses:

  • severe shortness of breath, preventing you from completing event the simplest of tasks;
  • wheezing and coughing;
  • tightness in the chest;
