Occupational lung disease
Do you know the risks, and could you recognise the symptoms of lung disease?
Last year, around 12,000 people in the UK died from lung diseases estimated to be linked to past exposure at work.
If you’re an employer, you have a legal duty to protect workers’ respiratory health.
Breathing in certain dust, gases, vapours and fumes at work can cause life-changing lung disease.
Ensure you have effective measures in place to control exposure in your workplace. Visit the HSE's lung disease basics webpage for more information and guidance.
