Respiratory conditions are extremely common when working in the construction industry, and there are a number of dangerous substances an individual can be subjected to. Exposure to chemicals and harmful dust particles are the main causes of occupational asthma, however there are many more conditions that can arise from working around the manufacture of chemicals.
From welding to detergents, textiles to paint, there are a number of materials and substances that give off harmful toxins when manufactured. If you have worked in any of these industries and are experiencing the effects of respiratory disease, then you may have grounds to claim compensation against your employer
Types of respiratory disease
There are many different types of respiratory disease including
- Black Lung
- Brown Lung
- Coal Worker’s Lung
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD) including emphysema and bronchitis
Symptoms of Respiratory Disease
After inhaling a dangerous substance, a person may feel some irritation to their mouth and throat before any effect on the lungs. Initial symptoms can include a persistent cough, a fever and cold and flu-like symptoms such as a runny nose as well as wheezing, breathing difficulties, tiredness and tightness of the chest. In some cases, no symptoms are apparent therefore, if you believe that you have been exposed to a dangerous substance, you should seek medical advice immediately. Many respiratory diseases are treatable; however, some can prove terminal.
