Industrial Disease

Industrial disease – disease or disability resulting from conditions of employment (usually from long exposure to a noxious substance or from continuous repetition of certain acts).

This is normally the result of poor working conditions including a lack of training or provision of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
