What Is An Occupational Disease?

Also known as work-related diseases, occupational diseases are illnesses or medical conditions caused or worsened by the work environment. These diseases can vary from mild, short-term conditions to severe, long-lasting or permanent disabilities.

Occupational diseases can affect various organs and systems in the body. Common examples of occupational diseases include:

  • Respiratory diseases like asthma, chronic bronchitis and silicosis resulting from exposure to dust, fumes or chemical vapors
  • Skin diseases caused by exposure to chemicals, plants or other irritants. Examples include atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis
  • Musculoskeletal disorders caused by repetitive motion or heavy lifting. Some examples include carpal tunnel syndrome and back pain
