Worked as a welder?
If you have had a welder job and now suffer from chest pressure, feel breathless or you’re coughing at night, you may have occupational asthma or Siderosis. This can occur as a result of being exposed to iron, which is then deposited into the lung tissue and causes a reduced respiratory function.
- Have you been exposed to chemicals or substances like iron?
- Do you have a persistent cough, feel tightness in the chest or have trouble breathing?
- You may be able to make an occupational asthma claim.
Welders are also at risk of developing occupational dermatitis as a result of working with oil based products as well as noise induced hearing loss, which is caused by certain types of welding such as Arc and MIG.
