Occupational asthma can be caused and worsened by being exposed to certain chemicals and substances in the workplace. Chest pressure is a common symptom of the work-related respiratory condition. Other warning signs of occupational asthma to look out for include:

  • Coughing at night
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness

There is a continually growing list of Asthmagens which cause workers to suffer from occupational asthma. These substances can be found in a wide range of industries, from catering and cleaning to agricultural and industrial sectors. It is worth noting that while certain people do develop asthma because of such respiratory sensitisers, others can remain completely unharmed.

Worried about having occupational asthma?

If you are worried that you or someone close to you has chest pressure and is also suffering from other occupational asthma symptoms, we would recommend that you book a medical appointment. By visiting a GP, you can get an official diagnosis and access to any medical treatment required.

Workers suffering from occupational asthma can also find that they unfortunately face a number of financial and medical setbacks. Compensation is available for such people, but only if the employer is responsible for the harm. This financial settlement can help you to deal with any issues related to the respiratory condition, giving you the opportunity to live comfortably with asthma.
