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 and repetitive strain injuries.

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

To determine if your industrial illness is caused by your work environment, you can:

1. Consult with a healthcare professional to assess the symptoms and potential causes of the illness.

3. Gather information on the specific hazards and substances present in your work environment and compare them to your symptoms.
