Industrial disease is when an employee contracts an illness whilst performing their duties at work. Industrial disease compensation is provided for those who have made an industrial disease claim against their employer when they have failed to put in place the safety precautions which could have prevented such illness.
Common industrial disease claims are:
- Asbestos Related Disease Claims;
- Hearing Loss Claims;
- Mesothelioma Compensation Claims;
- Other Industrial Disease claims;
- Repetitive Strain Injury Claims;
- Respiratory Claims;
- Work-Related Asthma Claims; and
- Work-Related Dermatitis Claims.
If the employee is in an environment where there is a lot of noise, dust, or fumes then it is the employer’s duty to minimize the aforementioned elements to a reasonable level. This is often done through provision of protective equipment.
If you feel that you have a claim for industrial disease, please get in contact with one of our specialists at Bloomsbury Law. Not only is it important to make a claim against your employer, but also make them answer for their poor working conditions. This will improve the working environment for all of the employees which is always beneficial. We look forward to discussing your claim and advising you on any queries you may have.
