Workplaces can be hazardous and exposure to such things as chemicals, noise and vibrations can cause long term health issues.
It is an employer's duty to ensure that work environments are safe and that any forseeable dangers are minimised through the provision of effective safety procedures and appropriate PPE workwear. Employers must also maintain insurance policies that pay out if an employee suffers injury as a result of their work. Any claim you make will be paid for by your employer's insurers so it shouldn't have a negative effect on the business or your ongoing job.
If you are suffer from a condition that was caused by where you work or worked you could make a compensation claim that could help with your pain and suffering.
You should be careful to speak to a law firm that has experience of working in this sector, as they tend to be the most complex and difficult claims to make.
