What Is Industrial Disease?
Have you suffered as a result of a work related illness?
If the answer is yes, then we are here to help you. Tinsdills Solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation due to Industrial Disease.
Any employer has a duty of care for you, their employee. As a result of the Health & Safety at Work Act, they are obligated to shield you from any possible health risks in your workplace.
This is often achieved with risk training, regular work breaks, and the use of PPE – personal protective equipment.
Unfortunately, failure to follow best practice is common, and workers are often put at risk.
Workplaces failing to put the relevant procedures in place is sadly all too common, resulting in employees being put at risk.
Our expert team of solicitors have helped many clients in making claims for industrial diseases of all kinds.
What To Do If You Are Suffering From Industrial Disease
Have you developed symptoms which could be a consequence of your job or workplace? If so, you need to let your employer know as soon as possible, and request that you be referred to Occupational Health for a thorough assessment.
It is vital that you let your employer know of these difficulties straight away, at which point they will officially be ‘on notice’ and under pressure to make the necessary changes to your work or working environment.
At this point, it is also advised that you seek out medical help about these symptoms. This can be done by simply making a standard GP appointment. At this point, your GP might refer you elsewhere for more tests as some forms of Industrial Disease need these in order to be diagnosed.
