What types of industrial diseases are eligible for compensation claims?

Industrial diseases that are eligible for compensation claims include asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma and asbestosis, lung diseases caused by exposure to harmful substances like coal dust and silica, occupational cancers caused by exposure to certain chemicals or materials, repetitive strain injuries, noise-induced hearing loss, and work-related stress and mental health conditions.

How can I determine if my industrial illness is a result of my work environment?
