What is occupational asthma?

Occupational asthma is caused when a person is exposed to a particular substance whilst at work that causes them to develop asthma. Symptoms can develop almost immediately and cause the sufferer's airways to narrow, resulting in breathing difficulties. Regular asthma can subside over time, but in cases where a person is continuously exposed to particular substances whilst at work, this can cause occupational asthma which can potentially affect the sufferer for the rest of their lives.

Symptoms of asthma may include coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing, tightness across the chest. Asthma sufferers may experience further difficulty if they develop a cold or flu, are exposed to cigarette smoke (or if they smoke themselves) and can also face difficulty if they come in to contact with animal hair, pollen and dust.
