Employers have a legal duty under health and safety legislation to ensure their workers' health, safety and welfare are protected in the workplace. However, working conditions are sometimes substandard and employees can fall ill, whether with minor illnesses or fatal diseases.

Causes range from different types of dust found in quarries, factories and foundries; chemicals and dyes; synthetic materials; rubber and cleaning agents. RSI is caused by continuous, repetitive movement that affects the muscles, tendons and other soft tissues - often in the arms and hands.

Vibration white finger is a similar condition affecting the circulation of blood to the fingers and hand. It is usually caused by using vibrating hand-held tools over a long a period of time.

Deafness, whether total or partial hearing loss, is caused by lengthy exposure to industrial noise and particularly affects workers in the engineering, construction and manufacturing industrials.

Common industrial diseases are asbestosis, lung cancer, and further types of cancer and deafness. Other common conditions that result from poor conditions in the workplace include dermatitis, asthma, bladder problems and repetitive strain injury (RSI).
