Occupational Lung Disease

Occupational lung diseases are a group of illnesses that are caused by either repeated, extended exposure or a single, severe exposure to irritating or toxic substances that leads to acute or chronic respiratory ailments.

There are two broad categories of occupational lung diseases:

Common occupational lung diseases include mesothelioma, occupational asthma, silicosis, asbestosis, and sick building syndrome. Adult-onset asthma can be triggered by occupational exposures. COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and even lung cancer, though primarily caused by smoking, can also result from workplace exposures.
