Work-related illness is a wide category of illnesses and health conditions caused by working conditions.

If your illness was caused by negligence on the part of your employer, either through an act or omission, you will have grounds to make a claim for compensation.

Claims for some illnesses that are closely associated with mining, factory work and other heavy industry, such as mesothelioma and noise-induced hearing loss, are also referred to as industrial disease compensation claims.

Work-related illness can result from a wide range of issues, from defective or inadequate PPE to over-work and poor Health and Safety practices.

Examples of work-related illness include:

  • Dermatitis
  • Workplace stress and depression
  • Lung disease
  • Asbestos-related disease
  • Repetitive strain injuries (RSI)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS)
