Industrial disease and work related disorders
Industrial disease and work-related disorders can happen as a result of exposure to an unsafe working environment over a considerable period of time. But while working conditions have generally improved, employers are still learning about the consequences of their mistakes.
One of the most attributable conditions of employment includes asbestos-related diseases, Vibration White Finger, industrial deafness and Tinnitus. However, it is exposure to asbestos that has become the biggest single cause of work-related deaths in the UK. Research held by The Health and Safety Executive revealed that 4,000 people a year die as a result of exposure to asbestos products.
