Occupational Asthma Claims

Causing the sufferer to experience difficulty breathing due to the narrowing of airways, asthma can be subdued via medication, however in many cases it is a condition that will remain for the rest of a person’s life.

Here at Tranter Cleere we have dealt with numerous claims of occupational asthma, but how does this differ from inherited asthma?

What is Occupational Asthma?

Often a person will develop asthma at a young age, with the condition being subdued over time or remaining throughout their lifetime, however some people develop asthma later in life and this could be due to something in their environment.

Common causes of occupational asthma include exposure to:

  • Flour;
  • Grain;
  • Isocyanates;
  • Laboratory animals;
  • Latex;
  • Enzymes;
  • Colophony.

Employers have a responsibility to ensure that their staff are working in conditions which are safe, and there are detailed regulations in place to protect workers from exposure to substances that could be harmful – the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations, or COSHH.
