Occupational Disease

An occupational disease is a health problem or ailment induced by your work environment or activities related to your work (e.g., cancer, lung disease, heart disease, internal and degenerative musculoskeletal disorders). Occupational Disease Attorney can help to compensate employees who are injured on the job with cash and medical benefits. Employers provide this insurance as a trade-off to ensure that employees do not sue their bosses or coworkers for negligence that causes a work-related illness. A “no fault” system is what this is called. Speak to a Occupational Disease Attorney for you case.

Importance. Occupational hearing loss is the most common occupational disease in the United States: it is so common that it is often accepted as a normal consequence of employment. More than 30 million workers are exposed to hazardous noise, and an additional 9 million are at risk from other ototraumatic agents.

In fact, any disease occurs at early stage as a result of exposure to occupational (physical, chemical or biological) risk factors is an occupational disease (1-3). Occupational diseases impose considerable costs to workers, their family, health care system and society (4) and reduce productivity and work capacity.

The ideal way to prevent occupational diseases is to eliminate the hazards in the work environment. It is thus appropriate not to adopt work processes that will generate hazards. Without hazards in the work environment, employees will not suffer from occupational diseases.

Occupational health is an area of work in public health to promote and maintain highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being of workers in all occupations.
