Understanding Occupational Diseases
Occupational diseases are those that occur during the course of employment. Because the public is not exposed to these illnesses outside of the workplace, these ailments are not considered ordinary.
In most cases, an illness is considered an occupational disease if:
- The diseases in not a condition of neck, spinal column, or the back
- The illness is caused by an occupation-related problem
- The workplace is the proximate cause of such illness
- The employee can prove that the illness occurred during the course of employment and not outside the occupation
