Occupational Asthma

Occupational asthma is a common condition where the airwaves narrow, making it difficult to breathe. Even though it is easily treatable work related asthma can affect the daily life of an employee, making it difficult for them to carry out their usual tasks.

Employers must protect their employees from any hazards they face whilst at work, including exposure to the substances that are likely to cause asthma such as pollen and dust.

What is Asthma?

Asthma is an illness in which the airways tighten causing breathing problems and a tight feeling in the chest. The symptoms of asthma can differ depending on the cause of the illness.

Unfortunately in some cases employers fail to protect their employees from health and safety hazards which can lead to them being exposed to hazardous substances.

Regular exposure to irritating substances such as dust, bromleians, carmine, coffee bean dust and egg proteins can cause occupational asthma.

Asthma Symptoms

The symptoms of asthma can change depending on what has caused the breathing difficulty, in some cases symptoms can be seasonal or if caused by exposure to hazardous substances at work they can be very severe.

The common symptoms of asthma include:

  • A persistent cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tiredness/ weak feeling during exercise
  • Wheezing or coughing after exercise
  • Feeling tired, upset or moody

If you believe that you are suffering from occupational asthma it is essential to seek medical advice.
