There are many conditions that develop because of the working environment or the repetitive nature of the work an employee has to do.
Generally, the illness or condition develops over a long period of time and an employee does not become aware of why they have developed symptoms until much later. It can be caused by exposure to hazardous chemicals or substances that you have been using in your job or simply exposed to in the workplace itself.
Your employer is obliged to reduce the risk of you developing a number of conditions, including the following:
- Asbestos Related Illnesses
- Occupational Cancers
- Occupational Dermatitis
- Occupational Asthma
- Industrial Deafness, Noise Induced Hearing Loss & Tinnitus
- Vibration White Finger (VWF), Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) & Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
- Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), Work Related Upper Limb Disorder & Bursitis
- Work Related Stress
Health and Safety laws exist to protect you at work. If you are injured or become ill because your employer is negligent or does not follow the law, you are likely to have a claim.
Even if your condition hasn’t caused you to take time off work, you can still claim compensation for its effects.
This is why Attwaters Jameson Hill’s Personal Injury solicitors are here.
