WHAT IS INDUSTRIAL DISEASE?
It is an illness or condition caused by exposure to a harmful chemical substance or unsafe condition in the workplace. Some employees have already had bad health conditions which get worse when they do work in such environment. For example, an employee who has some sort of skin issue may experience skin allergy during his work in a factory which exposes chemical compounds in the environment. There are different kinds of industrial disease such as lung and respiratory disease, skin disease, occupational cancer, vibration injuries, asbestos-related disease, dermatitis, latex allergy, asthma, silicosis, industrial deafness, hand/arm vibration syndrome, etc.
WHEN CAN I MAKE INDUSTRIAL DISEASE CLAIM?
No matter where you work, your employer is responsible to provide you safety at the workplace. It is his duty to care his employees and protect their health, safety, and well-being. If he fails to perform his duty and as a result of an employee suffering from a disease then an employee can come forward and submit an industrial disease claim against the employer.

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM YOU?
In order to file the claim, it is important to prove that you got suffered from a disease within last years of your employment. The main cause of your disease is your workplace accident and exposure. You can make a claim even when you diagnose a disease more than three years ago while working in the workplace.
