Employees who become unwell as a result of their workplace can be said to suffer from a job related illness. It is very easy to get sick, especially if your work environment is dirty and damp or otherwise not kept to a clean standard.

If you think you have a job-related illness, then the best thing to do is to go to your doctor so he or she can diagnose you and tell you what treatment options are available. Also, be sure that you inform your boss that you are going to the doctor so that everything can be logged officially.

Job related illnesses can include skin problems, sickness from biological agents, stress disorders and mental health problems or even cancer. Some jobs have much higher risk levels and as such should be covered by health and safety regulations and safe practices.

The worst part about job related illnesses is that they can strike suddenly. It’s a sad fact that thousands of people are sick on a daily basis due to stress and other unhealthy conditions at work and there doesn’t seem to be any way to stop it. Don’t let this happen to you! Go ahead and see your doctor so you can find out if you have an illness that could be affecting your work, especially if you’re getting sick more often than normal.
